MicroCare Europe highlights ‘Green’ cleaning innovations

27 January 2015

Introducing its newest range of electronics cleaners and cost-saving SMT production aids (Stand H55).

At the Expo, MicroCare will introduce the newly-improved VOC-free TidyPen ‘60-second sticky stuff remover’, a time-saving tool for electronics manufacturing, repair shops, medical facilities, and any place where sticky labels are used. The new TidyPen speeds the removal of almost anything sticky, including many conformal coatings, flux residues, glues, tapes, labels and some inks. The formulation has been designed to be VOC and REACH compliant, and is also safe to use on plastics, gaskets and other materials of construction found on PCBs. Importantly, the improved TidyPen is packaged for vending machines, which are becoming increasingly important cost-control systems and widely used in many facilities.

Another important introduction at the show is the unique VOC-Free Flux Remover–UltraClean, which meets the market’s ever-increasing need for high performance PCB cleaners. It is particularly effective at removing lead-free no-clean fluxes and pastes, and also is successful in removing silicone-based coatings and adhesives. UltraClean is a non-chlorinated, halogen-free cleaning fluid formulated specifically for rework and repair tasks, and is suitable for use in removing fingerprints, moisture, light oxides, dust and other airborne contamination frequently found on circuit boards returned for warranty or service work. 

Tom Tattersall, MicroCare CEO, noted that with these two introductions, using new chemistries not found in cleaners from other companies, MicroCare has attracted significant interest from electronics’ manufacturers world-wide because they are wishing to use cleaners that are completely free of halogens and ozone-depleting substances. 

Unique in the industry, the VOC-Free Flux Remover — UltraClean can be used with the MicroCare TriggerGrip cleaning system that improves cleaning results and lowers operating costs.
