Higher performance critical cleaning solutions at IPC APEX
Continuing to promote strong and consistent message of high-performance precision cleaning, MicroCare will be attending the IPC APEX EXPO, in San Diego, CA from 27th February to 1st March 2018. The cleaning professionals from MicroCare will present its family of critical cleaning products, including the company’s latest innovative chemistry, Tergo High Performance Flux Remover.
With more stringent regulatory requirements and environmental expectations imposed on companies, Tergo High Performance Flux Remover is an important innovation for industry.
The product is a non-flammable cleaning chemistry specifically engineered to clean challenging high-temperature solder pastes and flux residues, including water-soluble (OA) fluxes. It has the added benefit of removing stubborn white residues from lead-free PCBs. Tergo High Performance Flux Remover can also be used as a degreaser and even removes slight oxidation and tarnish from finished surfaces.
“At MicroCare we are continually working to get the message across that people need to implement cleaning processes that not only work great and increase productivity, but that are also safer for the environment,” explains David Ferguson, Tergo Product Manager at MicroCare.
“Our Tergo products have excellent toxicity profiles for low global warming impact and REACH/ROHS compliance while some are even VOC-exempt,” explained Dan Sinclair, MicroCare National Sales Manager. “This means that companies can feel secure that the cleaners they specify in the USA will be available globally.”
Because Tergo High Performance Flux Remover is compatible with traditional vapour degreasing procedures, it can easily be used as an alternative for chemistries that are being phased-out under environmental, health, safety or economic pressures.
Ferguson emphasised: “We want to get the message across at APEX that there are efficient PCB cleaning chemistries out there that steer clear of all the old chemicals which negatively affect our environment, and also clean better and faster. The Tergo family not only results in impressive cleaning, but they are more cost-effective than almost any other choice.”
MicroCare will be presenting its range of ‘greener’ cleaning products at IPC APEX, on booth 2909, from 27th February to 1st March, with the team on-hand to provide advice and information on any cleaning requirements and suitable products.
