Many shops require levels for typical component packages on FR-4 or a like substrate to be 2, 9, 15, 1 and 10 mg/in2 for fluoride, chloride, bromide, nitrate, and sulfate respectively. These levels can change for Medical or Automotive.

We believe that it's perfectly resonable for you to define the cleanliness that you require. We recommend that you leave it at that and not define the process or materials that your supplier use in meeting that cleanliness level. Start with a dirty

Thanks folks. The current vendor is doing an alcohol wash, top and bottom, then performing an ionic test on 100 boards. I'm not to confident in the testing because the readings for a "clean" board are 25 ugm/sq in and a "dirty" board are 40 ugm/sq in

Jeff: Try this: ROSA. John�s spot on. I�ll add that it is a fluxless method that reduces the oxides in an aqueous solution. Another source of information is: Trench, M., Hillman, D., Lucey, G., "Environmentally Friendly Closed Loop Soldering,"

If No-Clean flux does not need to be cleaned, then why do I get readings of up to 27(ug NaCl/sq in) on boards that are not washed, up to 23.4(ug NaCl/sq in) on boards washed with DI water only and from 1.2 to 10.1(ug NaCl/sq in) on boards washed with

Casimir: Let me expand on something that I said in my response to your thread on ionic testing. Generally, no-clean people don�t use ROSE testing as part of their process control, because the ROSE test is essentially washing your board in DI/IPA �
