Dust-Aid Uses Adhesive(!) to Clean DSLR Sensors

Dust Aid DSLR Sensor Cleaner

Would you dare using adhesive tape to lift those specks of dust off your DSLR image sensor?

No problem, says Ross Wordhouse, who invented Dust-Aid. He said he developed and tested Dust-Aid using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) and it showed no adhesive residue or contamination; safe to use, and effective too. FTIR is a powerful tool for identifying chemical contamination by producing an infrared absorption spectrum that is like a molecular “fingerprint”.

Dust-Aid uses a unique combination of three main elements – an ultra low-adhesive foam tape, pad and a re-usable wand. The tape that actually touches the sensor filter has an adhesive specifically designed for glass applications with one of the lightest tack levels available.

Sensor cleaning does not have to be a scary affair anymore with Dust-Aid. And – because there’s no flammable liquid involved – you can breeze through airport security without the hassle.
