Cleaner Technologies

Innovative technologies for electronics manufacturing.

product group: atron  FAST® Technology

ATRON product group are formulated by ZESTRON with the Fast Acting Surfactant Technology (FAST®).

FAST® technology enables the cleaner to remove residues of lead-containing and lead-free NoClean solder pastes effectively and quickly due to its significantly better surface wetting traits. FAST® technology thus guarantees excellent cleaning performance, especially in spraying processes.

Due to the special formulation, FAST® surfactant cleaners require much shorter contact times and fewer active cleaning components to remove more residues compared to conventional surfactants, which then ensures a longer bath life resulting in reduced process and maintenance costs.

product group: vigon  MPC® Technology

VIGON product group carries water-based cleaning technology named the Micro Phase Cleaning (MPC®) developed by ZESTRON.  MPC® products are formulated with a special feature that combines the advantages of traditional solvents and surfactant cleaners, but without accepting their disadvantages.

Cleaners for the electronics cleaning & power electronics sector as well as MRO cleaners are based on MPC technology.

Aspects of this technology are internationally protected by patents.

Vigon Product groupAdvantages of MPC® Technology - Electronics Cleaning

All MPC® cleaning media carries a characteristic of high broadband capability. Due to the combination of polar and non-polar components, wide varieties of organic and inorganic contaminants can be cleaned off.

Further advantages of MPC® cleaners

  • Water-based: no flash point

  • Very low VOC values: particularly environmentally compatible

  • very good filterability: high economic efficiency

  • surfactant-free: no surfactant residues on surfaces

  • Good material compatibility

Advantages of MPC® Technology - MRO Cleaning

  • Achieving very high surface tensions of over 50 mN/m

  • Removal of mixed contaminants: non-polar oils/greases and polar cooling lubricants in one process

  • Residue-free drying due to surfactant- and solids-free formulation

  • No waste water, as MPC® cleaners can also be used as a rinsing medium.

Product group: hydron  HYDRON® Technology

The HYDRON® technology developed by ZESTRON enables the complete removal of any contamination from the various surfaces with its water-based, single-phase cleaning media. HYDRON® products are recommended for various cleaning applications, such as flux removal from assemblies, power electronics, packages and wafers or for stencil cleaning.

HYDRON Product groupYour advantages at a glance

Single phase formulation

  • Stable, single phase emulsion, no phase separation

  • No agitation or mixing necessary to activate the cleaner

  • Very good cleaning performance

  • Binds contaminants only temporarily, therefore easy to filter

  • Long bath life and low costs

Single-phase processability

  • Very good cleaning and rinsing performance in cleaning systems with limited mixing

  • Stable concentrations between cleaning tank and cleaning chamber

  • Simple bath sampling, as the cleaner does not have to be mixed beforehand

  • Simple re-dosing of ready-mix possible

Very good rinsability

  • Complete removal of residues due to very good rinsability

  • Residue-free, homogeneously rinsed substrates when using HYDRON® cleaners in immersion processes for flux removal from assemblies and power electronics

  • Completely streak-free stencils when using HYDRON® cleaners for cleaning and rinsing in stencil cleaning processes

product group: zestron ZESTRON Modern Solvents

ZESTRON's solvent cleaners are modern systems formulated with modified alcohols.  Compared to simple alcohols such as IPA or acetone, they provide significantly improved cleaning performance and higher bath loading capacity resulting in a more economical option yet high effectiveness in removal of flux, solder paste, and SMT adhesives from electronic assemblies, ceramic substrates, power modules, leadframes, stencils, and screens.

Additionally, ZESTRON's solvent cleaners have a higher flash point, which ensures safer usage in machine applications. All ZESTRON cleaners are free of halogenated compounds, which makes them particularly environmentally friendly compared to halogenated alcohols such as 141B or trichloroethylene.

ZESTRON solvents can be used in in both water-free and semi-aqueous cleaning processes. They are formulated to be completely surfactant-free, which makes the media very easy to rinse.
