KYZEN has been awarded the 2014 Global Technology Award for innovation in the category of Electronics Cleaning Materials. The award is for KYZEN’s environmentally-friendly cleaning product, AQUANOX® A8830 Low VOC Aqueous Stencil Cleaning Agent. The award was presented Tuesday, Sept. 30, 2014 in a ceremony that took place at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL during SMTA International. This is the third industry excellence award given to AQUANOX® A8830 this year. AQUANOX A8830® also won the CIRCUITS ASSEMBLY NPI Award and the EM Asia Innovation Award.
Premiering in 2005, the Global Technology Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. A distinguished panel of industry experts selected KYZEN’s A8830 based on its level of creative advancement in the Electronics Cleaning Materials category.
“Our scientists are global leaders in precision cleaning technologies, and they care enough to continuously innovate and improve,” said Tom Forsythe, Vice President, KYZEN. “They created AQUANOX® A8830 specifically for stencil cleaning. It’s an honor to accept the Global Technology Award for A8830.”
AQUANOX® A8830 is an ultra-low VOC, environmentally-friendly formulation that is highly effective at removing all types of solder pastes (water soluble, rosin, and no-clean) from fine-pitch apertures. A8830 is a low odor cleaner that operates in open systems. The state-of-the-art environmental properties of A8830 make it an ideal option for areas where air emissions are highly regulated.
A8830 meets the tough challenges of cleaning no-clean, lead-free residue from small, 01005 apertures while being compatible with modern nano-coatings as well as with all the modern offline cleaning equipment currently used in the industry. Providing increased performance adds real value with better prints and modern, green technology that is better for the environment.
AQUANOX® A8830 is available in one, five and 55 gallon containers.
