MicroCare Corp., a manufacturer of critical cleaning, coating and lubrication products, has recently been focusing on their newest electronics cleaner, Tergo high performance flux remover.
This flux remover is an innovative nonflammable cleaning chemistry designed to clean circuit boards in automated vapor degreasing systems. Its unique formulation helps companies clean PCBs faster and more thoroughly, even in challenging applications, with a higher quality clean at a lower cost. It can also can be used as a degreaser removing light oxidation and tarnish from finished surfaces.
The product is specifically engineered to clean difficult high-temperature solder pastes and flux residues, including water-soluble (OA) fluxes. The product offers the added benefit of removing stubborn white residues from PCBs. Because this fluid is compatible with existing vapor degreasing procedures, it is the ideal replacement for many older chemistries being phased-out due to environmental, health, safety or economic pressures. It also makes equipment modifications unnecessary.
“Cleaning with the new Tergo fluid is much ‘greener’ and more energy efficient than water cleaning systems,” said David Ferguson, Precision Cleaning Product Manager: “This product cleans great, uses less electricity, and takes up less floorspace in the plant. All this means faster, more thorough and more consistent cleaning of even the most stubborn contamination without using a drop of water.”
“Vapor degreasing is far less energy-intensive than aqueous cleaning, and is generally faster and more gentle on delicate PCBs,” Mr. Ferguson added.
