Removal of baked on fluxes with VIGON® RC 101

Water-based Cleaning Medium for Reflow and Wave Solder Equipment.

Based on the MPC® Technology, VIGON® RC 101 was specifically developed to remove all types of baked-on flux residues from reflow and wave solder equipment. It reliably removes re-condensated fluxes and emissions from assemblies.

Areas of application:

  • Low solid flux residues
  • Rosin based flux residues
  • Water soluble flux residues
  • Synthetic fluxes
  • Fumigation contamination

Advantages compared to other cleaning agents:

  • VIGON® RC 101 has a mild formulation with a low alkaline pH-value. Therefore, no special labeling is required.
  • Excellent material compatibility with aluminum and epoxy surfaces
  • The cleaning agent is also suitable for the pre-cleaning of condensation traps.
  • VIGON® RC 101 has little odor.

Advantages compared to other oven cleaners:

  • VIGON® RC 101 has no flash point and therefore can be applied directly onto cold or warm surfaces (30 - 40 °C / 86 - 104 °F).
  • The medium does not contain any ingredients, which could leave residues on the oven surfaces. This avoids harmful condensations on the assembly surfaces after restarts.
  • Due to the short soaking time, a quick and efficient cleaning process can be achieved and long machine downtimes can be avoided.

Advantages - conveyor fingers cleaning:

  • Reduced cleaning agent consumption compared to IPA.
  • Its no flashpoint formulation significantly increases the operator’s safety.

Environmental, health and safety regulations:

  • VIGON® RC 101 is water-based and biodegradable.
  • VIGON® RC 101 is formulated free of halogenated compounds and is very environmentally friendly and considered a non-hazardous material.
  • No special precaution for handling VIGON® RC 101 is required.

Availability/Storage:

  • VIGON® RC 101 is available as a ready-to-use solution in 1l spray bottles, 5l or 25l containers and 200l drums.
  • Store VIGON® RC 101 in the original container at a temperature between 5 - 30 °C / 41 - 86 °F.
  • The product has a minimum shelf life of 5 years in factory sealed containers.

Alternative product recommendation:

  • For dip-tank cleaning of removable oven parts, i.e. condensation traps or solder frames, we recommend ATRON® SP 200.
  • This also applies for extremely baked-on residues.

About MPC® Technology

MPC® stands for Micro Phase Cleaning and is a water-based cleaning technology developed by ZESTRON. Aspects of this Technology are internationally patented.

The unique feature of MPC® Technology is, that it combines the advantages of  traditional solvents and surfactants  without their drawbacks.

Advantages of MPC® Technology

MPC® cleaners are characterized by a wide process window. The combination of polar and non-polar compounds allow MPC® cleaning agents to  clean various organic and inorganic residues.

Further advantages of MPC® cleaners:

  • Water based: non-flammable
  • Extremely  low VOC content:  particularly environmentally friendly
  • Highly filterable: very cost-effective surfactant free: no surfactant residues on the surfaces
  • Excellent material compatibility
