MicroCare Europe bvba will showcase its electronics cleaning products at the SMT Hybrid Packaging show in Nuremberg, Germany. These new circuit cleaners will help companies boost quality, enhance throughput and lower PCB production costs. They will also help clients meet ever-more stringent European regulations.
Amongst the new range of products, are three new flux-cleaning chemistries including the no-clean flux remover, the RMA flux remover, and the water-soluble flux remover pens. Packaged in a pocket-sized, convenient pen, the highly effective cleaners have been developed to specifically remove fluxes easily and efficiently.
The no-clean flux remover pen is formulated to remove no-clean fluxes and pastes quickly, leaving no residue, and has the advantage of also cleaning other contaminants like adhesives, oil and grease. It is also exceptional as a degreaser and general-purpose cleaner and boasts low Global Warming Potential (GWP) credentials. It is exempt from VOC regulations in most areas making it an ideal cleaning option during assembly.
Visitors will also be introduced to the high-purity RMA flux remover pen, which contains an extra-strength formulation to help clean aged and baked-on flux which can prove difficult to remove. It easily penetrates and dissolves excess flux and removes ionic and non-ionic activators, drying residue-free.
Completing the range is the economical Water-Soluble (OA) flux remover pen used to clean organic acid solders, pastes and fluxes. Featuring a slow evaporation rate, the product works effectively to remove baked-on flux residues.
“Having received such a great response from visitors at IPC Apex Expo in San Diego, CA where we launched the products to the USA market, we are looking forward to showcasing our new and innovative cleaners to Europe,” said Scott Wells, General Manager Europe.
“As well as the range of flux remover pens, we will introduce the new ESD presaturated cleaning wipes. The static-dissipative, lint-free wipes effectively remove flux residues, oils, fingerprints, grime and debris from ESD mats, tools, bins, tool racks, workbenches and other surfaces in a PCB manufacturing facility, making it the perfect choice for a variety of cleaning jobs.”
