Aqueous Technologies’ CEO to Present at ETEK Europe’s Technology Day in Scotland

Jun 12, 2013

 Aqueous Technologies announces that its CEO Michael Konrad will present at ETEK Europe Ltd.’s Cleaning & Conformal Coating Technology Day. The event is scheduled to take place Wednesday, June 26, 2013 at the new ETEK Technology Centre in Scotland. Mike will present, “Electrical Leakage, Dendritic Growth, and White Residue... The Rush to Clean No-Clean.”

Once commonplace, then relegated to military and other high-reliability applications, today, defluxing has again moved toward the mainstream.  The miniaturization of electronics assemblies and their components, implementation of lead-free alloys, combined with improved quality standards and higher reliability expectations have culminated to form a growing demand for ionicly clean electronic circuits.

Mike will review the major causes of residue-related failures including dendritic growth, electrical leakage and under-coating adhesion failures.  Why we clean and what we are removing, and how clean is clean will be presented. A cleaning equipment “roadmap” will be presented and will review various cleaning processes, modern equipment requirements, and environmental considerations. Additionally, a review of conventional and non-conventional cleanliness testing techniques will be presented as well as a review of the common question, “How Clean Is Clean?”

Michael Konrad is an SMT Advisory Board member and President of Aqueous Technologies. Konrad was a member of IPC’s Stencil Cleaning Task Group, contributing to the IPC-7526 Stencil and Misprinted Board Cleaning Handbook and IPC 5-31Cleaning Handbook.
