All Surclean Chemistries Ready For Lead-Free

Higher flux residue levels in lead-free solders will lead to more requirements for cleaning. Aggressive activators also require higher levels of PCB cleanliness to maintain the reliability of assemblies in service.

Similar demands are now being made for lead-free stencil cleaning, particularly due to the drive for smaller apertures. Following a 12 month development programme, all Surclean UK products have been tested and optimised for top level performance on removal of residues from lead-free assemblies and stencils.

Economic cleaning of lead-free residues across a wide range of assemblies, stencils and solder materials is now easily achievable using existing equipment.
