Cleaning flux residues post-soldering has been a high-reliability criterion practiced by assemblers of military, aerospace, automotive, medical devices and other value offerings. Highly dense advanced packages reduce spacing between I/Os and standoff heights. The complexity of removing flux residue increases, while elevating the risk of white residue under low standoff (gap) components.
To address this concern, many electronics assemblers use water-soluble solder paste and clean post-soldering. The purpose of this factorial designed experiment is to evaluate multiple water-soluble flux materials and cleaning chemistries, including DI water only, to determine the best chemical properties for removing lead-free water soluble flux residues. The optimal process parameters will be defined with data findings analyzed and presented using statistical analysis and models.
