MicroCare Corp. introduced a major expansion of the precision cleaning products to visitors at the IPC APEX EXPO, in San Diego, CA Feb. 27-March 1, 2018. Among the innovations were a new heavy-duty degreaser in an aerosol package, a heavy-duty cleaner for mass transit systems, and an innovative pre-saturated cleaning wipe designed specifically to enhance ESD programs in manufacturing facilities. All of these products will be shipping and available from distributors world-wide within the next 45 days.
The biggest crowd-pleaser was the new ESD Presaturated Cleaning Wipes which were presented for the first time to the electronics industry. These static-dissipative lint-free wipes feature a new chemical formulation packaged with a rugged, non-linting fabric wipe which quickly, easily and thoroughly remove flux residues, oils, finger prints, grime and debris from ESD mats, tools, bins, tool racks, workbenches and other surfaces in a PCB manufacturing facility.
“Everybody worries about ESD, so APEX is a great venue for MicroCare to showcase our latest innovations,” said Dan Sinclair, MicroCare National Sales Manager. “The ESD Presaturated Cleaning Wipes were very well received and customers kept trying to take our display samples to test and confirm they really do prevent the build-up of electrostatic charges.”
Also new to the MicroCare portfolio are the Heavy-Duty Transit Cleaner and the Heavy-Duty Degreaser. The Transit Cleaner is one of the strongest and most versatile cleaners in the MicroCare line. It has been specifically engineered for the use on vehicles like buses and trains, but is also effective for cleaning trolleys, elevators and escalator systems. The nonflammable fluid quickly and easily removes dirt and grease from machinery and metal parts, as well as successfully removing oils, inks and organic grime which can be difficult to clean.
Meanwhile, the Heavy-Duty Degreaser is a super-strong non-flammable multipurpose degreaser engineered to be fast drying, leaving no white residue. This cleaner also saves time as no rinsing is required, making it even more economical. While not directly focused on the electronics industry, it cleans most oils, grease, inks, grime and so is a great all-round product. It is also available in pail and drum sizes so the fluid is the ideal choice for any size company.
All in all, IPC APEX was a very successful show in 2018, and MicroCare is eagerly looking forward to seeing these additions be commercialized into the market and snapped-up by new and existing customers.
