MicroCare Corp. will be presenting its expanding range of ‘greener’ cleaning products at SMTA International in Rosemont, Illinois, from September 24-25 2019. The team will introduce visitors to innovative chemistries which help improve the manufacturing process of electronic devices.
One product to be highlighted during the exhibition is Tergo High Performance Flux Remover. As a non-flammable, low-temperature cleaning fluid, it has been specifically engineered for high volume production cleaning of printed circuit boards in vapor degreasing systems.
It features a non-volatile additive specifically designed to clean difficult to remove solder pastes and stubborn white flux residue. It also works well to clean water-soluble (OA) fluxes and lead-free materials. Because of its unique formulation, companies can clean flux from PCBs faster, more effectively and at a lower cost while meeting increasingly strict environmental regulations.
Tergo High Performance Flux Remover can be used as a direct replacement for many older vapor degreasing chemistries that are being phased-out under environmental, health, or safety pressures.
“Vapor degreasing is significantly less energy-intensive than aqueous cleaning and therefore more environmentally friendly. It is also generally faster and gentler on delicate circuitry; cleaning small complex shapes far better than water-based systems,” said Rob Lee, MicroCare Senior Market Technical Manager.
“When used together with highly advanced cleaning fluids like Tergo™ High Performance Flux Remover, vapor degreasing is a very effective method to clean PCBs.
“Tergo High Performance Flux Remover is kinder on the planet thanks to its excellent toxicity profiles for low global warming impact. It also delivers consistent and reliable cleaning, even on difficult-to-remove ‘no-clean’ fluxes and other solder pastes. This modern cleaning fluid is a long-term and sustainable answer to the difficult cleaning issues facing production engineers today.”
