"LasticCoat" for Wiper Blades and Doctor Blades
Start-Up Kit includes:
Use "LasticCoat" on your old worn out wiper blades and doctor blades. "LasticCoat" bonds to the surface of the blade, creating a new edge on the wiper blade and filling in the wear on the doctor blade. Re-manufacturing your blades using "LasticCoat" will provide you with a cartridge that works as well as one with new blades at a fraction of the cost.
Try "LasticCoat" by testing a cartridge with "known to be bad" blades, then remanufacturing the blades with "LasticCoat" and testing the cartridge again. You will see the print quality become as good as if replacement blades were used.
Application instructions for Wiper Blades and Doctor Blades
Step 1: Cleaning
Wear protective eyewear and gloves before you begin. Clean the blade well, of all toner, with 99% Isopropyl Alcohol. Any residue will cause the coating to peel or give a "fish-eyed" appearance.
Step 2: Pre-Bond Treatment with chlorinated water
This step is critical for optimal coating adhesion. Mix a small amount of chlorine bleach (a 10% solution) into water. Soak a soft white lint-free cloth with the chlorine mix and pad (gently rub) the surface of the blade thoroughly (please wear the appropriate gloves for chlorine use). Chlorine prepares the surface of the PCR for bonding with the coating.
Notice: If blades are made from silicon the coating may NOT adhere to them. As far as we know some of the OEM blades for the HP 4100 are or were made from silicon, and none of the after-market blades are.
Allow the blade to dry or dry it with a soft white lint-free cotton cloth.
Step 3: Application of CoatingPour some coating into a small glass bottle or small can (2 ounce). Dip foam swab into the coating, touch the tip of the swab on the inside lip of the bottle to release some of the coating. Hold the blade from the metal end – do not forget your gloves – with the part of the blade that touches the OPC or Mag-Roller facing up and coat it with the swab moving from left to right or right to left. If the coating looks too thin, you can coat the blade over either right away (move in the same direction) or after it dries. Hold the blade for a few seconds to dry a little and then place it in a blade stand to finish drying and to bond. Coating dries to the touch in 5 to 10 minutes, depending upon temperature.
Do not use blades for at least 24 hours after coating.
