Six New Precision Cleaners Introduced by MicroCare at APEX 2016

Mar 03, 2016

MicroCare Corp. will introduce six new products, including three new aerosol-packaged circuit cleaners, at the APEX Exposition in March 2016. These products use novel chemical formulations not previously on the market to help companies lower their PCB cleaning costs, improve product quality and meet ever-more stringent regulatory obligations.

The three new flux removers are the Universal Flux Remover, the Universal Contact Cleaner and the Polar Flux Remover. The Universal Flux Remover is a highly effective cleaner for the rosin-based, high-temperature, lead-free materials that are so difficult to clean. The Universal Contact Cleaner is formulated for cleaning electrical contacts, relays, switches and circuits. It is non-conductive, fast-drying, non-flammable with excellent materials compatibility. The Polar Flux Remover is the most aggressive of the three and is an excellent choice for cleaning heavy, aged fluxes and pastes found in PCB repairs.

MicroCare also is introducing the Tergo™ High Performance Flux Remover. This is a non-flammable, low-temperature cleaning fluid for use in vapor degreasers. This cleaner features a non-volatile additive specifically engineered to clean challenging solder pastes and flux residues, stubborn white residues and even water-soluble (OA) fluxes. This makes the Tergo™ High Performance Flux Remover a drop-in replacement for many older vapour degreasing chemistries that are being phased-out under environmental, health, safety or economic pressures.

MicroCare also is introducing a new dust remover aerosol with a unique valve that allows the product to clean hard-to-reach locations, even when the can is inverted. Lastly, MicroCare is bringing to market a new, streak-free foaming glass cleaner for housekeeping chores within a manufacturing facility. These two maintenance cleaners will be widely accepted across the industry for their utility and price-performance.

Companies will prefer all of these cleaners because they are highly effective, long-term answers to the difficult cleaning issues facing production engineers today. These cleaners are compliant with all current environmental, health and safety regulations. Engineers can specify a high performance benchtop cleaning process today and not worry about the issue again, perhaps for decades, which saves time and money. These products also are formulated to be in compliance with all the emerging regulations around the world.

The three circuit board cleaning products are engineered to be used with the optional, money-saving TriggerGrip™ cleaning system from MicroCare. The TriggerGrip™ system reduces solvent use while enhancing user ergonomics, which enables operators to clean more quickly, more safely and with less fatigue. When the aerosols are empty, the canisters are engineered to be easily recycled, which is a significant benefit to European customers.

These products are be available from authorized MicroCare distributors around the globe. For more details, visit MicroCare at Booth #1257, or click through to www.microcare.com.
