May 18, 2015

ZESTRON, the global leading provider of high precision cleaning products, services and training solutions in the electronics manufacturing industry, has the AK-225 alternative for manual PCB defluxing - VIGON® EFM.

Recommended for solder paste applications (lead and lead-free pastes and fluxes) including No-Clean, rosin, rosin-activated and rosin mildly activated, this AK-225 alternative is easy to use, dries fast and residue-free.
