Cleaning result can vary from paste vendor to vendor and even within product lines. You should check with your paste vendor for their recommendations. Your process, materials and equipment will also have a significant impact on your success. If you'

Wondering if anyone is using cleaning solutions that are safe to use and store, and don't cost an arm and a leg. Cleaning tasks would include solder paste stencil cleaning, misprinted PCB cleaning, flux cleaning after rework, and so on and so forth.

jdomont, No-cleans are more difficult to clean than RMA�s. Even though no-cleans have a lower solids content than RMA�s, reflow and soldering profiles are normally more severe than those used for RMA. It is interesting to note that our most of our

I would recommend the following paper entitled "Cleaning for Reliability Post QFN Rework" by Mike Bixenman (Kyzen) and myself (Aqueous Technologies). While it discussed cleaning under QFN's in a batch environment, it is also applicable to cleaning u

No-Clean fluxes are difficult to clean off boards. Cleaning effectivness depends on the washer, the chemistry, the flux type, number of reflows, and the time between reflow and washing. White residue is flux residues that have started to break down b

Thanks to everyone who posted! I did get the boards clean and it worked well I used AIMTERGE 520A about 5% in HOT water.. I soaked for 10 minutes used a brush(handscrubber type)to loosen the residue. For the fine pitch I used a fine bristled small

Stencil Cleaning [AIM LeadFree] * Stencils should be cleaned frequently enough to ensure total removal of any bottom side residues, but not so infrequently as to allow the same residues to dry or cake on, making their removal much more difficult. * S

I would question your motive "There's no way that I feel comfortable shipping boards after a selective without cleaning them, the amount of flux on the board is significantly more than from SMT". 1. Who said that residue should be cleaned and why? O
