MicroCare to Showcase High-Performance Cleaning Solutions at IPC APEX EXPO 2018


Reading time ( words)

MicroCare Corp. will continue to promote a strong and consistent message of high-performance precision cleaning to visitors at the IPC APEX EXPO, in San Diego, California from 27 February to 1 March 2018. The cleaning experts from MicroCare will present their family of critical cleaning products, including the company’s latest innovative chemistry, Tergo High Performance Flux Remover.

With more stringent regulatory requirements and environmental expectations imposed on companies, Tergo High Performance Flux Remover is an important innovation for industry. It is already receiving very positive feedback from many industries, not only for its effective cleaning, but also for its impressive environmental qualities.

The product is a unique, nonflammable cleaning chemistry specifically engineered to clean challenging high-temperature solder pastes and flux residues, including water-soluble (OA) fluxes. It has the added benefit of removing stubborn white residues from lead-free PCBs. Tergo High Performance Flux Remover can also be used as a degreaser and even removes slight oxidation and tarnish from finished surfaces.

“At MicroCare we are continually working to get the message across that people need to implement cleaning processes that not only work great and increase productitivy, but that are also safer for the environment,” explains David Ferguson, Tergo Product Manager at MicroCare.

“Our Tergo™ products have excellent toxicity profiles for low global warming impact and  REACH/ROHS compliance while some are even VOC-exempt,” explained Dan Sinclair, MicroCare National Sales Manager. “This means that companies can feel secure that the cleaners they specify in the USA will be available globally.”  

Because Tergo High Performance Flux Remover is compatible with traditional vapor degreasing procedures, it can easily be used as an alternative for chemistries that are being phased-out under environmental, health, safety or economic pressures.

Mr. Ferguson emphasised: “We want to get the message across at APEX that there are efficient PCB cleaning chemistries out there that steer clear of all the old chemicals which negatively affect our environment, and also clean better and faster. The Tergo family not only results in impressive cleaning, but they are more cost-effective than almost any other choice.”

MicroCare will be presenting their impressive range of ‘greener’ cleaning products at IPC APEX, booth #2909, from 27 February to 1 March, with the team on-hand to provide advice and information on any cleaning requirements and suitable products.

Solder in PCBA: Can’t Live Without It... or Can We?

02/17/2020 | Joe Fjelstad, Verdant Electronics
For most of its historical use in electronics, the solder alloy of choice was tin-lead, either an Sn60/Pb40 alloy or the Sn63/ Pb37 eutectic version of the tin-lead alloy. These two alloys were the workhorses of the industry. They were both well understood in terms of their processing and reliability—that is, until the advent of lead-free, a well-meaning but ill-conceived and poorly executed conversion, forced on the industry by the European Union in 2006.
