NASHVILLE, TN - Kyzen, a world leading provider of environmentally responsible precision cleaning products for electronics and high-technology manufacturing operations, announces that Dr. Mike Bixenman along with co-author Steve Stach from Austin American Technology will present a paper titled "Validation of New 'ROSE' Test" at the upcoming SMTA International, scheduled to take place October 24 - 28, 2010 at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando, FL. The presentation will be held during Session SMT3, titled "Cleanliness Measurement and Monitoring Issues," which will take place Tuesday, October 26, 2010 from 4-5:30 p.m. in room Asia 2.

Resistivity of solvent extract (ROSE) is the daily standard by which most high reliability cleaning of electronic assemblies are judged. Many studies have proven the current standard, which uses isopropyl alcohol (IPA) and water, to be misleading when accessing if fluxes remain in areas that would likely lead to reliability concerns.

This paper reviews the limitations of the current test method and validates a new modified test method that greatly improves the ability to dissolve and detect trapped residues that could limit product performance. The research objective is to contrast the current IPC TM-650 2.3.25 method against a new method that validates the cleanliness levels on today’s circuit assemblies.

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