MicroCare says it will use NEPCON Shanghai (25-27 April) to highlight three new cleaning chemistries in the Tergo family: Tergo Metal Cleaning Fluid, the Tergo Chlorine-Free Cleaning Fluid and the Tergo Flux Remover. The Tergo Flux Remover is a non-flammable, low-temperature cleaning fluid engineered for cleaning PCBs in vapor degreasers. This cleaner features a non-volatile additive specifically engineered to clean challenging solder pastes and flux residues, stubborn white residues and even water-soluble (OA) fluxes.
This makes the Flux Remover a drop-in replacement for many older vapour degreasing chemistries that are being phased-out under environmental, health, safety or economic pressures. It also makes it an excellent replacement for aqueous cleaning machines.
The new Tergo Metal Cleaning Fluid is a highly effective double-duty cleaner, easily degreasing metal parts and defluxing circuit boards. It is designed to replace hydrocarbon degreasers, plus nPB, TCE, PFCs and other old-style solvents. It is one of the strongest vapor degreasing fluids on the market (high Kb value) yet it is compatible with most materials of construction including metals, ceramics, most durable plastics and elastomers. This rugged formula can be used in the aerospace, automotive, medical, extraction and industrial sectors.
The Tergo Chlorine-free Cleaning Fluid is a new type of precision cleaning fluid engineered for use in vapor degreasers. Operationally, the fluid is a nonflammable, highly aggressive cleaning liquid that operates in standard vapor degreasing hardware at traditional vapor degreasing temperatures. But chemically this is unlike any product on the market today. The result is a highly cost-effective, chlorine-free precision cleaner that removes a very broad range of soils with superior materials compatibility. The primary advantage of the Tergo CFCF is an unusually favorable environmental footprint. It is an excellent alternative for companies switching from hydrofluorocarbons (HCFCs), n-Propyl Bromide (nPB) and chlorinated solvents in mission-critical cleaning, drying or carrier fluid environments. This product is specified and used in almost every country and industry around the world.
The secret to all three of these new fluids is the non-flammable chemistry specifically engineered to enhance degreasing applications. This fluid also does not require chemical stabilizers or scavengers to prevent it from breaking down in the presence of water or white metals. The unique, patent-pending mix of chemistries enables simpler, faster, better and less expensive cleaning while meeting stringent environmental and worker safety regulations.
