ZESTRON, the globally leading provider of high precision cleaning products, services and training solutions for the electronics manufacturing industry, is pleased to announce that Jigar Patel, M.S.Chem.Eng., will present “Defluxing in a No-clean and OA World” at the Cleaning, Testing, and Coating Workshop in Toronto, Ontario, on Tuesday, November 19th, and on Thursday, November 21st, in Montreal, Quebec.
Current trends including miniaturized components, increased board density and reduced standoff heights are driving the need for precision cleaning. These issues compound the cleaning effectiveness in OA applications as water cleaning processes have reached their limitation for cleaning effectiveness. Failure to properly clean PCBs decreases product reliability resulting from dendritic growth, electrochemical migration and electrical leakage currents. Mr. Patel will discuss reliability issues, solutions, analytical methods, best practices, and case study results.
The Assembly Cleaning, Testing, and Coating Workshop will be hosted by ZESTRON, Arbell, Alpha, Henkel, and Aqueous Technologies. Four presenters will cover a range of topics including PCB failure mechanisms, solder paste challenges, surface analytics, conformal coating, and low cost solutions. This event is held from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM, with participants having the option to attend this free-of-charge workshop on Tuesday, November 19th, at the Hilton Garden Inn Toronto/Markham in Thornhill, Ontario, or on Thursday, November 21st, at the Hilton Garden Inn Montreal Airport in Montreal, Quebec. Register today at www.zestron.com as seating is limited.
