Jigar Patel to Present at Collaborative Cleaning Workshop in Canada

[Manassas, VA – August 23, 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 Jigar Patel, M.S.Ch.E., Senior Application Engineer, ZESTRON Americas, will present “PCB Reliability with No Clean and Water Soluble Fluxes” at collaborative cleaning workshops in Canada with Arbell, Alpha Assembly Solutions, Aqueous Technologies, and MG Chemicals.  These free workshops will be held on Tuesday, September 20th in Thornhill, Ontario, and Thursday, September 22nd in Montreal, Quebec. Registration is required.

Using No Clean and/or Water Soluble solder paste? Trends within the electronics industry are increasingly moving towards miniaturized components, increased board density and reduced standoff heights, driving the need for precision cleaning regardless of the paste types used. For high reliability applications, cleaning is a requirement in order to prevent critical failure mechanisms. Mr. Patel will discuss the need to clean No Clean fluxes and the limitations of a water only cleaning system for cleaning Water Soluble fluxes. In addition, the impact of thermal profile variation on PCB reliability and best practices for accurate concentration monitoring will be reviewed.

The Toronto workshop will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn Toronto/Markham, 300 Commerce Valley Drive East, Thornhill, Ontario, and the Montreal workshop will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn Montreal Airport, 7880 Cote-De-Liesse, Montreal, Quebec.  To register for these free events, please click here.
