MicroCare Europe BVBA, a manufacturer of critical cleaning, coating and lubrication products, will exhibit its range of sustainable cleaning solutions at productronica in Munich, Germany. A highlight will be the company’s innovative Tergo family of cleaning products which boasts impressive ‘green’ credentials.
As manufacturers become increasingly aware of the importance to find sustainable practices, the company will present its cleaning products, which have been developed to not only clean effectively but in an economically and environmentally sound way.
“When it comes to selecting cleaning solutions, we are seeing a change to the approach in which the electronics industry is choosing their cleaning processes,” said Scott Wells, General Manager.
“A very important consideration is its sustainability. Cleaning processes must minimise any negative environmental impact, whilst also conserving resources like energy. At the same time, it has to clean effectively. This is particularly important as electronic components become smaller and more intricate.
“Another significant factor is ensuring the safety of the workers. The Tergo product range upholds regulatory compliances with excellent toxicity profiles, making them safer for the environment and people. During productronica, we will introduce visitors to the Tergo product range including the high performance flux remover which is having a very positive effect on long-term sustainable cleaning for companies around the world.
Tergo high performance flux remover is a non-flammable fluid engineered for cleaning PCBs in vapour degreasers. It features a non-volatile additive specifically developed to clean challenging high-temperature solder pastes and flux residues, stubborn white residues and water-soluble (OA) fluxes. This flux remover is a drop-in replacement for many older legacy chemistries that are being phased-out under environmental, health, safety or economic pressures. It also makes it an excellent replacement for power-hungry aqueous cleaning machines, therefore helping to conserve natural resources.
The company will also exhibit Tergo chlorine-free cleaning fluid, a highly advanced non-flammable cleaner, which contains no harmful chlorine-containing elements. This ensures it is within strict regulatory and environmental boundaries.
It is an effective degreaser offering comprehensive and reliable cleaning of the most challenging contamination including complex shapes and delicate substrates.
As regulatory demands change, and environmental concerns grow, finding a cleaning solution for complex electronic components can be challenging. This chlorine-free cleaning fluid is helping to answer these requirements and improving manufacturing processes.
