[Manassas, VA – December 5, 2016] - ZESTRON, the global leading provider of high precision cleaning products, services and training solutions in the electronics manufacturing and semiconductor industries, is pleased to announce that Axel Vargas, Sales Engineer, ZESTRON Americas, will present “pH Neutral vs Alkaline Cleaning Agents” at the SMTA Tampa Bay chapter meeting on December 8th.
Although modern aqueous alkaline cleaning agents effectively remove flux residues, achieving satisfactory results often requires an increase in temperature, exposure time, chemical concentration, and mechanical energy that may affect material compatibility. This presentation includes data from three case studies detailing how newly developed pH neutral formulations have proven capable of removing difficult post reflow residues from complex board geometries without affecting the material compatibility of sensitive components.
The SMTA Tampa Bay chapter meeting will be held at Jabil Circuits, 10560 Martin Luther King Jr. St, St. Petersburg, FL. The event will cost $15 for SMTA members, and $20 for non-members. To register, please visit SMTA.org.
