Aqueous Technologies to Co-Host Daylong Cleaning Seminar

Feb 23, 2010

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA — February 2010 — Aqueous Technologies Corporation, North America’s largest provider of batch defluxing systems, and Technical Resources Corporation announce that they will host a one-day free seminar on the subject of cleaning/defluxing.

The seminar, entitled “Conductive Crystals, White Residues and Decreased Reliability: The Rush to Clean No-Clean” will take place Tuesday, March 16, 2010 from 9 a.m.- 4 p.m. (lunch included) at the MC Assembly Conference Center in Palm Beach, FL. This one-day seminar is designed to bring attendees up to date with current cleaning and cleanliness testing best practices. It also will provide answers to the industry’s most commonly asked cleaning questions. Kyzen, a leading supplier of cleaning/defluxing chemicals also will present information on the latest advances in cleaning chemistries.

Post-reflow defluxing has been an integral part of the electronics assembly process since the first electronic circuits were soldered. In 1989, government regulations (Montreal Protocol) banned the production of many CFC-based solvents including 111-Tricholoroethylene and Freon-TMS, two of the industry’s most popular defluxing solvents. While military and medical manufacturers switched to alternative defluxing processes, most commercial manufacturers abandoned their post-reflow defluxing processes in favor of a no-clean process.

Today, the effects of miniaturization and higher lead-free alloy reflow temperatures are resulting in increased visible residues, increased electrical migration and decreased reliability. The near sudden realization between visible and invisible residues and assembly failures has generated a rush to clean no-clean fluxes.
