NASHVILLE — Kyzen, the world leading provider of environmentally responsible precision cleaning products for electronics and high-technology manufacturing operations, announces that Dr. Mike Bixenman will present a paper titled "Improving the R.O.S.E. Process Control and Quality Assurance Method" at the upcoming International Conference on Soldering and Reliability (ICSR), which is co-located with the Lead-Free Academy and SMTA Toronto Expo and Tech Forum. The presentation is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, May 18, 2010 at 2:45 p.m. at the Hilton Toronto Airport Hotel in Toronto, ON.

Quality engineers have long known that cleanliness of printed wiring boards is crucial to the assembly’s performance and reliability. The common method for process control at the assembly level is IPC 2.3.25 – Detection and Measurement of Ionizable Surface Contaminants by Resistivity of Solvent Extract (R.O.S.E.).

R.O.S.E. testing was highly beneficial since the test provided a quick and easy method for manufacturing technicians to statistically control and monitor the production assembly and cleaning processes. The R.O.S.E. method limitations arise from the methods’ inability to dissolve many of today’s flux residues, and to remove and detect ionic contamination trapped under low component clearances.

These limitations question the validity of the R.O.S.E. test method as a quality assurance and process control indicator on many of today’s leading edge circuit assemblies. The purpose of this research paper is to test the effectiveness of new ion exchange resins for removing both ionic and non-ionic contaminants from improved extract solvents

Dr. Bixenman is CTO of Kyzen Corp., and current Chairperson of the IPC Cleaning and Alternatives Handbook and IPC/SMTA High Performance Cleaning Symposium.
