Precision Cleaning in 21st Century: New Solvent with Low Global Warming Potential

First published in the 2012 IPC APEX EXPO technical conference proceedings.

by: Rajat Basu, Ryan Hulse, Kane Cook, Diana Mercier; Honeywell International

As we progress in the 21st century, electronics manufacturing will need more and more precision. Parts will get more complex since more components have to be assembled in smaller spaces. Circuit boards and other electronic assemblies will become more densely populated; spacings between components will be shorter. This will require precision manufacturing and efficient cleaning during and post manufacturing(...)

This paper will detail the development of a new very low global warming potential environmentally friendly non-flammable solvent with excellent cleaning abilities. Environmental properties, cleaning efficacies, stability in various conditions, and compatibility with plastics, elastomers, and metals of the solvent will also be described in this paper.
