The process of wiping away the protective coating on a smartphone is a tedious process that requires expensive and laborious equipment, according to new research from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
The team was able to wipe away the coating on the screen of a smartphone by simply pressing on the device with a needle, then blowing on it with a vacuum cleaner.
A similar process is done to clean your car.
“You can take a smartphone and remove the coating by simply applying a pressure to the backside of the device,” lead author Jie Chen, an assistant professor of mechanical engineering, told Ars.
“The screen is a very small part, so the needle can’t penetrate it.”
Chen added that the process of removing the protective layer isn’t necessary, as long as the phone’s internal components are clean and protected.
“When we wipe the screen, we don’t remove any other internal components, like the camera, the battery, or the chip, which we need to be able to reuse,” he said.
“But we’re still wiping away this protective coating.
There are three different types of coating: a thin, very thin layer, a thick, extremely thick layer, and a layer of a layer that has a layer between two different layers.””
This makes it possible to remove the screen completely.”
There are three different types of coating: a thin, very thin layer, a thick, extremely thick layer, and a layer of a layer that has a layer between two different layers.
“The thickness of the coating is measured in nanometers.
That’s the smallest amount of a material’s thickness that can be measured.
A thin layer is typically made up of a few layers of thin films, including the front and back of the display.
A thicker layer of the same material is usually found on the back.
The coating layer can be used to protect or protect against UV radiation.
The thickness is dependent on the amount of film,” Chen added. “
A thin screen can be a lot thinner than a thick screen,” Chen said.
“The thickness is dependent on the amount of film,” Chen added.
“In this process, we use a very thin film of glass, which means it’s thinner than the thicknesses of the film.
We also use a thin layer of plastic.
We’re also using a very thick layer of glass.
So the thickness is actually a function of the thickness.”
Chern and his team were able to clean the screen by simply wiping away a small amount of the protective coat that was embedded in the screen.
The team was also able to remove a few of the smaller layers of film that were embedded in it.
“It’s very easy to wipe off a thin film layer with a small needle,” Chen told Ars, noting that the team could wipe off the layers of glass only once or twice.
“It’s really a really easy process to wipe out a layer.”
The team then went back to the phone and repeated the process.
This time, the researchers used a needle to push a small piece of the screen onto the back of a vacuum-sealed vacuum.
A vacuum cleaner can be purchased for around $40.
Once the film was removed, the team put it in a high-temperature liquid-liquid separator, or HPLC, and let it sit for several hours to remove any traces of the old film.
“We then use the same process, but we’re using an oxygen-free, ultra-high-temperature solvent, and then we can remove the film,” the team said.
Chen’s team was then able to apply the film to the display by adding more solvent to the solvent and letting it sit overnight.
They were then able get the screen to fully dry and clear the film with a cotton swab.
The coating was then wiped away, and the screen was cleaned by simply brushing it off.
“I’ve done this for a variety of smartphones, but I’m the only one who has ever done this on this particular smartphone,” Chen explained.
The device was then cleaned with a second solvent, but this time the team used a clean, low-tempo solvent such as water.
The screen was then allowed to completely dry, and after removing the screen from the phone, the screen itself was wiped away.
The researchers noted that there was no visible residue left on the surface.
“You don’t even notice the residue,” Chen noted.
“What you’re seeing is the coating has been washed away.”
Consequently, the coating’s protective coat remained intact, while the new layer of film was not.
“If you have an iPhone or any other smartphone with an old film on the display, you can wipe away this layer,” Chen observed.
“So, you’re not going to lose anything, so long as you’re using the same solvent.
And you can clean it again with a new solvent, just like with a screen.”
