KYZEN, the global leader in innovative environmentally friendly cleaning chemistries, has been working tirelessly on the release of their newest aqueous product. The company will be announcing the newest addition to its award-winning AQUANOX line at the IPC APEX EXPO 2022 happening January 25 – 27 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, CA.
This new innovative aqueous product was designed to be the work horse of electronics cleaning applications. It will quickly remove polymeric no-clean flux, as well as traditional lead-free and eutectic tin-lead residues while providing a long tank life and is safe for multi-pass applications. As with all of KYZEN's AQUANOX products, it is eco-friendly, low VOC, and compatible with today’s cleaning equipment.
KYZEN products and cleaning experts have always been focused on the process so you can be sure the newest AQUANOX product will fit into your production line. Adding KYZEN's Process Control System or the KYZEN Analyst paired with KYZEN Analyst Data Services will complete the optimization and provide you with a worry-free process.
Many long and hardworking hours were spent in the lab perfecting this chemistry and the KYZEN team is very excited to reveal the name of the new product along with its features at the show. For those attending the show, they can inquire about the new AQUANOX product at the KYZEN Booth #2101.

There has not been a time in recent memory when the U.S. legislative body is putting as much focus on the microelectronics industries. One bill, the CHIPS Act, was signed into law last year. A new bill introduced this year seeks to allocate funding for printed circuit board fabrication. In this exclusive interview, our team spoke with Travis Kelly, CEO of Isola Group and president of the Printed Circuit Board Association, and U.S. Rep. Blake Moore (R-Utah), who has co-sponsored the bill now before the House. Travis and Blake both express optimism about onshoring domestic production, but the realities of the legislative calendar may pose some risks.

If you work for a U.S. defense prime contractor, do you have concerns that the controlled unclassified information (CUI) for your printed circuit boards, your printed circuit board assemblies, and your cable and wire harnesses is safe? What about the design and the development process for your products? Is the controlled technical information (CTI) safe and protected? Are the suppliers that your company selected maintaining a quality system, a supply chain risk management process, a security system to protect products and services from unauthorized access, and a Chain of Custody policy for electronic and physical materials?

IPC Mexico has been growing for the past few years, and it’s no wonder: Mexico has become a major hub in the world of PCB manufacturing, spurred in part by reshoring as companies pulled work back from China during the pandemic. As the country’s maquiladoras thrived, IPC began expanding the Mexican educational and training operations, and the group recently named Lorena Villanueva as director of IPC Mexico. Andy Shaughnessy and Barry Matties recently spoke with Lorena and IPC Vice President of Education David Hernandez about IPC Mexico’s growth, as well as the office’s plans to provide PCB manufacturers the training resources they need to succeed.
