productronica will provide the venue for MicroCare to present its findings from an ongoing study with the industry’s leading flux and solder paste manufacturers which seeks to determine the best cleaning solutions for specific flux and paste products.
Working in partnership with principal companies including AIM, Alpha, Loctite, Indium, Koki and Kester, the MicroCare Critical Cleaning Lab conducted controlled bench top and automated vapour degreaser cleaning tests.
These determined which MicroCare cleaning fluids work best on specific flux and solder paste materials. The results give customers an efficient method in which to select a cleaner and validate their cleaning processes easily.
Scott Wells, General Manager, MicroCare Europe said: “By collaborating with the world’s leading flux and solder paste manufacturers we were able to independently verify specific MicroCare chemistries that will successfully clean each flux or paste. The testing has been verified to IPC A-610 certification which means it is within the accepted criteria for assembled electric products. This will help to ensure the reliability and quality of the cleaning undertaken.”
“MicroCare’s technical capabilities are consistently expanding and it is through studies like this, that we can help companies to clean better. With a critical cleaning lab now also available in the UK, we can provide our European customers with tailored formulas and processes to suit individual critical cleaning applications.”
MicroCare invests in pioneering research and development to provide customers with both off-the-shelf products and customised cleaning fluids to meet their specific needs. The MicroCare Critical Cleaning Lab provides a service which helps customers confidently select the best product to clean effectively, quickly, more safely, economically and with the environment in mind.
MicroCare will be exhibiting at productronica in Munich (November 12-15) on stand A4/101.
