KYZEN Participates in Successful European Compatibility Seminars


Reading time ( words)

KYZEN today announced that it participated in two successful compatibility seminars at the end of June in conjunction with Rotec, a PCB materials distributor in the Benelux. The first seminar took place on June 27 at KYZEN’s European headquarters in Aalter, Belgium, and the second took place on June 28 at the NH Conference Centre Koningshof Veldhoven in The Netherlands.

Both one-day seminars were well-attended and successfully provided information about compatibility issues that can appear in the solder, cleaning and coating processes. The different presentations explained to attendees how to avoid, measure, interpret and analyze these different situations.

KYZEN’s Mike Bixenman, DBA, chief technology officer, presented about the importance of measuring the impact of ionic contamination on the reliability of the electronic hardware, including cleanliness requirements, building hardware, testing and methods.

Other topics covered during the seminar were conformal coating processes, influences, threats and process variables; tracking and tracing in electronics, including compatibility in the SMT, cleaning and coating process; solder mask vs. conformal coating “surface tension issues”; high-reliability cleaning and conformal coating including the IPC and J-STD approach on cleaning and coating; and a compatibility study on solder paste vs. cleaning vs. coating.
