Emil Otto Launches New Flux Remover onto the Market


Reading time ( words)

Emil Otto expands the range of assembly cleaning agents with a manually applied medium for the removal of flux residues.

The EO-RA-007 Flux Remover is a clear, colorless cleaning liquid, based on an isopropyl alcohol - solvent mixture, which has been developed for the manual cleaning of circuit boards of flux residues. The new cleaning agent can remove both residues containing resin as well as those that are resin-free. But besides flux residues, all other impurities can also be removed, such as dust, fingerprints, grease and oils. The circuit board substrate does not thereby play a role, as the EO-RA-007 reacts non-corrosive. The cleaning agent can therefore be used on all types of circuit board.

EO-RA-007 is supplied in a 400 mml spray can, which is provided with a brush attachment. The cleaning liquid can thereby be applied specifically and sparingly to the circuit board. Since the cleaning agent is applied manually, particular attention was given to the odor, to ensure that it is pleasant and that the application is as easy as possible. Furthermore, it has been shown both in internal tests as well as in customer tests, that the period of residue-free evaporation is ideal for the optimal cleaning in manual applications. EO-RA-007 evaporates fast and does not leave behind any residues. Ideally, the cleaning agent can be wiped from the assembly with an ESD cloth. EO-RA-007 is therefore ideally suited for the reworking of assemblies or for manual soldering.

Practical Implementation of Assembly Processes for Low Melting Point Solder Pastes (Part 1)

07/16/2019 | Adam Murling, Miloš Lazić, and Don Wood, Indium Corporation; and Martin Anselm, Rochester Institute of Technology
Since 2006 and the implementation of the RoHS directive, the interest in bismuth-tin solder alloys—whose melting point around 140°C is very desirable because it allows for the use of lower temperature laminate materials and reduces thermal stress on sensitive components—has only increased as the industry has searched for Pb-free alternatives to the chosen standard, SAC305, which melts at considerably higher temperatures than the incumbent tin-lead alloys.

Surface Treatment Enabling Low-Temperature Soldering to Aluminum

07/15/2019 | Divyakant Kadiwala, Averatek Corporation
An increasingly popular method to meet the need for lower cost circuitry is the use of aluminum on polyester (Al-PET) substrates. This material is gaining popularity and has found wide use in RFID tags, low-cost LED lighting, and other single-layer circuits. However, both aluminum and PET have their own constraints and require special processing to make finished circuits.
