Kyzen, a 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 "New Cleaning Agent Designs for Removing No-Clean Lead-Free Flux Residues" at the upcoming IPC APEX EXPO, scheduled to take place April 12-14, 2011 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Convention Center in Las Vegas. The presentation will be held during the Cleaning Session, which will take place Wednesday, April 13, 2011 from 1:30-3:30 p.m. Dr. Bixenman also will chair the Cleaning and Alternatives Subcommittee, which will take place during Session 5-31 on Tuesday, April 12, 2011 from 10 a.m.-12 p.m.

The static cleaning rate for lead-free flux residues is dramatically different from eutectic tin-lead flux residues. To clean lead-free soils, longer wash exposure time, high cleaning agent concentrations, and high levels of mechanical energy are needed. The purpose of this research paper is to measure the cleaning variability induced by lead-free flux residues and to compare the cleanability of lead-free flux residues in order to determine the viability of new cleaning agent designs.

Co-founder and CTO of Kyzen Corp., Dr. Mike Bixenman has more than 35 years of experience in wet chemistries. He is an active researcher, and working with his research team, customers and industry partners, has helped develop environmental conscious cleaning processes that meet the demanding needs of today’s electronics assembly manufacturing.
