Kyzen to Chair Cleaning & Alternatives Subcommittee Meeting at IPC Midwest 2009

Aug 28, 2009

NASHVILLE — August 2009 — Dr. Mike Bixenman of Kyzen along with Dr. William Kenyon, Global Centre Consulting, will chair the Cleaning & Alternatives Subcommittee at the upcoming IPC Midwest Conference. The meeting will be held during Session 5-31 of the Standards Development Meetings, scheduled to take place Tuesday, September 22, 2009 from 8 a.m.-12 p.m.

This subcommittee is combining and updating four cleaning handbooks into a single document. The base documents are IPC-SC-60, “Post Solder Solvent Cleaning Handbook” IPC-SA-61, “Post Solder Semi-Aqueous Cleaning Handbook” IPC-AC-62, “Aqueous Post Solder Cleaning Handbook” and IPC-CH-65, “Guidelines for Cleaning of Printed Boards and Assemblies.”

The pace of technology development and innovation has created an expectation that products will perform upon demand. Technology advances create the need for highly complex circuitry driven by improved performance, miniaturization, and circuit density.

To address these challenges, the task group has developed 14 sections that address cleaning value, assembly design, materials compatibility, process control verification, assembly residues, post assembly cleaning issues, environmental and safety concerns, solvent cleaning, semi-aqueous cleaning, aqueous cleaning, and rework and repair. The goal of this meeting is to review the working drafts, set in motion a project plan that moves toward final drafts for industry review, and publishing at APEX 2010.
