Missprint PCB cleaning | 11 August, 2008

Hi All We are looking for not expensive solution for misprint PCB cleaning for both one and double side assemblies. We have tried different ways and cleaning solutions like: IPA, Vigon Zestron SD300, Vigon SC200 by deep the boards in to stainless steel bath and brush them. IPA is a chip solution but it works fine only on PCB's one side soldering. The same with SD 300. SC200 also working good but PCB's should be dried or baked properly before soldering because it is water bases solution. Does some one have more convenience solution without using any machinery?

You might want to try on kolb MultiEx 3D waterbased detergent.

Try Avantec Topklean EL-60, can clean off solder paste or uncured glue, is hydrocarbon based cleaner - but with high flash point.

Will evapourate faster than water based solutions, not as fast as IPA , but does much better job.
