MicroCare™ Offers IPA Alternatives Amid Coronavirus Outbreak

May 7, 2020

MicroCare Offers IPA Alternatives for electronics assembly.

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) is making the availability of IPA (Isopropyl Alcohol) scarce. The CDC recommends using cleaners made of at least 70% alcohol to disinfect surfaces. This led to widespread demand for IPA with much of it diverted for use in hospitals and other medical settings. As a result, electronics and medical device manufacturers are facing shortages of the IPA they once used for cleaning their products during and after manufacturing.

Fortunately, MicroCare offers a full line of IPA alternatives to deflux printed circuit boards and to clean screens, stencils and reflow ovens just as well, if not better than IPA. Plus, they are nonflammable for added plant and worker safety.
