ZESTRON’s VIGON® EFM the AK-225 Alternative for Manual PCB Defluxing

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.

As HCFC-225 is banned from production by the EPA as of January 1, 2015, ZESTRON’s VIGON® EFM is the market alternative for manual defluxing. This manual defluxing agent has a long-standing proven performance record and is formulated halogen-free including HCFC-225. 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.
