3M recently announced their withdrawal from the PFAS chemicals market. In this IPC APEX Expo interview MicroCare CEO Tom Tattersall and Global SMT Editor-In Chief, Trevor Galbraith discuss the complicated and often misunderstood, topic of PFAS chemicals and how they impact the environment. The biggest takeaway? It’s time to move on from 3M Novec fluids, but don’t panic! MicroCare has pretty close to drop-in Novec replacements for you for both vapor degreasing and benchtop cleaning. We’re happy to work with you on your fluid selection as well as the validation and qualification of your cleaning process.
