MicroCare unveils new flux-remover packaging at Apex Expo

March 1, 2018

MicroCare Corp. chose IPC Apex Expo in San Diego this week to launch ten new cleaning products. Featured among these developments are flux-cleaning chemistries in a new pocket-sized cleaning-pen package. The new range features three formulations: the No-Clean Flux Remover, the RMA Flux Remover, and the Water-Soluble Flux Remover pens. These three new cleaners have been designed to specifically remove fluxes quickly and safely and ensure PCBs will enjoy a long and productive life at low cost.

The company said its No-Clean Flux Remover product is formulated to remove no-clean fluxes and pastes quickly, leaving no residue. It also has the added benefit of cleaning other contaminants like adhesives, oil, and grease—making it a degreaser as well as general-purpose cleaner. The company said it has low global warming potential (GWP) and is exempt from VOC regulations in most areas, making it an option for use on modern production lines and repair centers.

MicroCare also introduced visitors to the RMA Flux Remover pen, which contains an formulation to help clean difficult to remove aged and baked-on flux. Completing the line-up is the Water-Soluble (OA) Flux Remover pen, a versatile and economical cleaner for organic acid solders, pastes, and fluxes. Because this cleaner evaporates more slowly, it increases the time techs have when working with baked-on flux residues.

“Better, faster, and more convenient cleaning solves numerous PCB assembly problems and makes a stronger, more durable circuit,” explained Dan Sinclair, MicroCare national sales manager. “These new cleaning pens will give technicians another option to quickly clean their PCBs and produce strong, reliable circuitry.”

The company said the new Flux Remover pens are suitable for companies seeking maximum convenience and speed on the workbench. They are portable, economic cleaning tools that make cleaning quick and easy, so technicians can deliver perfectly clean electronic assemblies every time.

Also showcased were the economy-size flux-remover aerosols, which include the Heavy Duty Flux Remover-SuprClean, the Alcohol-Enhanced Flux Remover-ProClean, and the No-Clean Flux Remover-VeriClean. The larger package helps to reduce packaging waste and offers a number of cost-saving benefits. The price of the new products will reduce the cost-per-cleaning more than 10% over traditional packaging, the company said. All of the new cleaners are compatible with the TriggerGrip PCB cleaning tool from MicroCare.
