- Removes polar and ionic activators that other cleaners can’t
- Good for PCB rework and repair and post-reflow assembly
- Use on printed circuit boards, FR-4, components, connectors, cables, and mechanical assemblies
- No residue / no rinsing
- Strong cleaning strength – test on plastics
- Kb Value: 72 (est.)
- Slower drying time
- Acetone odor

Polar Flux Remover penetrates and dissolves white residue and dries residue-free. Plus, it has a slow drying time which allows technicians to work bigger surface areas with less fluid. The aerosol cans are both TriggerGrip™ Cleaning Tool compatible and StatZAP™ ESD Eliminator Tool compatible. A pocket-sized cleaning pen delivers pin-point cleaning fluid and is a real time saver.
