MicroCare to Highlight Technical Cleaning Expertise at IPC Apex
MicroCare Corp. is set to host live critical cleaning demonstrations at IPC APEX EXPO in San Diego, CA from February 4-6, 2020, booth 2643. The MicroCare team of technical cleaning experts will be on hand to present the latest advancements in benchtop and vapor degreasing cleaning.
The exclusive TriggerGrip™ cleaning system and a working vapor degreaser will be available for demonstrations. This will enable the MicroCare experts to explain how the innovative cleaning solutions from MicroCare clean effectively, safely and at the lowest-cost-per-part cleaned.
The MicroCare cleaning experts are a team of application scientists well-versed in all aspects of critical cleaning methodologies and fluids. They include both on-site regional sales managers and in-house chemists. All have years of knowledge and experience within the electronics industry, helping companies identify their PCB contamination and developing successful cleaning methods to remove it after soldering or reflow. Regional sales managers conduct on-site cleaning audits and provide product training and marketing support while MicroCare chemists help customers select a cleaner and validate their cleaning processes.
“MicroCare takes a total quality management approach to ensure customer satisfaction with product quality, responsiveness and technical service,” said Tom Tattersall, MicroCare Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “This includes the cleaning tests conducted at the MicroCare Critical Cleaning Labs located in the United Kingdom, United States and Singapore. Customers can send contaminated parts to the labs where our chemists clean them and then make recommendations on the best combination of cleaning fluids and processes for success. We encourage our customers to judge for themselves how effective our cleaners are,” Tattersall continued.
Vertrel™ SFR Specialty Fluid will be demonstrated in the vapor degreaser during the exhibition. This advanced non-flammable chemistry easily cleans high-temperature lead-free solder pastes and flux residue. It has excellent solvency power for a wide range of soils including both organic and ionic soils.
“Vertrel™ SFR Specialty Fluid has been developed to clean very effectively and to replace regulated chemicals like nPB and TCE, both of which are being phased-out due environmental concerns. Not only does SFR clean well, it also has much better toxicity profile,” said Tattersall.
With a long-standing history as a leader in critical cleaning, coating and lubrication products, MicroCare has its finger on the pulse of modern cleaning solutions impacting the electronics industry today. In addition to their customer technical support, MicroCare invests in pioneering research and development to provide customers with both off-the-shelf products and customized cleaning fluids to meet their specific needs.
“IPC APEX will be the perfect environment in which to demonstrate the MicroCare range of innovative cleaning chemistries, and also emphasize our ability to help solve any critical cleaning requirements,” said Tattersall. “With a large team of experienced technical experts locally, and the in-house Critical Cleaning Labs, we can help customers to find the very best critical cleaning solution.”
The MicroCare experts will be on-hand at the expo to discuss all products and services in more detail. To learn more, visit MicroCare at IPC Apex Expo 2020, booth 2643, San Diego, California from February 4-6, 2020.
