MicroCare worked in partnership with the industry’s leading flux and paste manufacturers to conduct solder paste and flux cleaning trials. When completed, the results were announced at the 2019 IPC APEX Expo. Controlled benchtop and vapor degreaser tests performed in the MicroCare Critical Cleaning Lab determined which specific MicroCare flux removers work best on specific materials. The solder and paste test materials include products from AIM, Alpha, Loctite, Indium and Kester. As a result, MicroCare can recommend the best cleaners for specific solder pastes and fluxes.
