Aqueous Technologies' Michael Konrad to Present at SMTA Chapters

Apr 27, 2009

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA � April 2009 � Aqueous Technologies Corp. announces that Michael Konrad, President of Aqueous Technologies Corp., has presented �Conductive Crystals, White Residues, and Lower Reliability � The Rush to Clean No-Clean� at several local SMTA chapters including San Diego and Los Angeles/Orange County.�This paper also was presented twice at APEX, which took place earlier this month in Las Vegas.�Mr. Konrad has been invited to present this topical and popular paper again at the Great Lakes chapter of the SMTA on Thursday, May 21, 2009 in Arlington Heights, IL and at the Oregon chapter of the SMTA on Wednesday, June 3, 2009 at Tektronix in Beaverton, OR.�

The electronics assembly industry has witnessed the return of a familiar yet unappreciated process step � defluxing. Once commonplace, then relegated to military applications, today defluxing has once again moved toward the mainstream. The miniaturization of electronics assemblies and their components, implementation of lead-free alloys, combined with improved quality standards and higher reliability expectations have culminated to form a growing demand for ionicly clean electronic circuits. Modern defluxing methods, chemical selections, cleanliness testing, throughput considerations, and effluent handling will be discussed.

Konrad's presentation focuses on the fact that no-clean has less relevance today due to miniaturization, increased densities, increased heat, increased reliability expectations, increased liability, increased reliance on quality standards. Also, he explains that cleaning increases reliability, increases yields, reduces field failures, reduces liability and costs less than ever before.
