KYZEN will present during ACI Technologies’ Third Annual Tech Expo, scheduled to take place April 27-28th at its facility in Philadelphia, Pa. Debbie Carboni will present “Unwashed circuit boards are more likely to fail, why use soap?”

We use soap during our daily lives because it cleans better than water only! Would you wash your laundry with only water? How about your hands? Cleaning assemblies are very much the same. While water cleans some things, there is dirt left behind. Cleaning with chemistry/"Soap" to remove RMA is a given. Why would I need use a chemistry to clean water soluble flux, after all it is water soluble? And this no-clean paste, why would I ever clean a material that is designed to "Not" be cleaned? Chemicals are confusing and toxic, especially with the new GHS symbols.

A common misconception is cleaning is complicated and requires a specialized chemist, especially when using soap. What does chemistry really buy me besides added costs? Come learn how your modern cleaning "soaps" are easy to use and environmentally friendly. Join our tech day session to learn from real case studies how using a chemistry improved the process and product reliability, and actually saves money.

Carboni joined KYZEN in 2007 as a Mid-Atlantic Regional Manager. A 15-year veteran of the precision cleaning industry, her primary expertise is in the cleaning sector of the electronics industry. Recognizing Carboni’s talents and expertise, KYZEN soon named her North American Sales Manager for its Electronics Division. Carboni serves as an active member of the SMTA Philadelphia Chapter. She actively contributes as an author of technical papers that focus on precision cleaning and wave soldering and presents at various forums and workshops across North America. Carboni brings a unique understanding of cleaning equipment and processes, making her a valuable resource for addressing emerging cleaning challenges.
