Circuit cleaning aerosols

13 July 2016 Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

MicroCare has introduced three new aerosol-packaged circuit cleaners with novel chemical formulations: Universal Flux Remover, Universal Contact Cleaner and Polar Flux Remover.

The Universal Flux Remover is a highly effective cleaner for the rosin-based, high-temperature, lead-free materials that are so difficult to clean. The Universal Contact Cleaner is formulated for cleaning electrical contacts, relays, switches and circuits. It is non-conductive, fast-drying, non-flammable with excellent materials compatibility. The Polar Flux Remover is the most aggressive of the three and is an excellent choice for cleaning heavy, aged fluxes and pastes found in PCB repairs.

These cleaners are compliant with all current European environmental, health and safety regulations, and are formulated to be in compliance with all the emerging regulations around the world. The Universal Flux Remover and the Universal Contact Cleaner are the first electronics cleaners introduced in Europe using the new, environmentally progressive HFO chemistries. They have an extremely low global warming potential (GWP) and are exempt from volatile organic compound (VOC) restrictions. Both cleaners are non-flammable for enhanced worker safety.

All three cleaners are packaged with a new, ultra-low GWP propellant, making these products among the first electronics cleaners to comply with the stringent new European F-Gas regulations. The ingredients of all three new cleaners are REACH, GHS, WEEE- and RoHS-compliant.

All three products are engineered to be used with the optional TriggerGrip cleaning system from MicroCare. The system reduces solvent use while enhancing user ergonomics, which enables operators to clean more quickly, more safely and with less fatigue. When the aerosols are empty, the canisters are engineered to be easily recycled.
