Flux Removers

Category:

Flux removers (defluxers) remove flux residues and other contaminants left by manufacture, rework, or repair of printed circuit boards. Residues from higher, lead-free temperatures are more baked on and harder to clean. PWR-4™, G3®, E-LINE™ and Precision-V™ flux removers have been proven very effective at removing fluxes baked on at lead-free temperatures.

Micro-components and fine pitch leads are delicate and easily damaged, so brushing and scrubbing should be avoided if possible. Both G3, E-LINE™ and Precision-V have a powerful spray and strong solvent that blasts off residues and cleans areas under components that a brush cannot touch.

Techspray offers traditional solvent-based cleaners and cutting-edge water-based technologies marketed under the Techspray Renew™ brand.

 

TECHSPRAY RENEW™ branded cleaners are innovative solutions that combine the best of current “green” technologies to make the most powerful eco-friendly cleaners on the market

All Techspray flux removers have the following advantages:

  • Help create bright, shiny solder joints
  • Improve PCB reliability
  • Prevent conformal coating defects
  • Prevent corrosion from contamination
  • RoHS compliant

Vapor Degreaser Solvents

Techspray offers a wide variety of vapor degreaser formulas engineered to meet challenging requirements like cleanliness specifications, difficult-to-clean soils, solvent-sensitive materials, and restrictive regulations.

All Techspray solvents have azeotropic properties that allow them to remain stable as they are cycled in a vapor degreaser. They are not reactive or corrosive to metals commonly found in the construction of vapor degreasers.

PWR-4™ solvents are designed to replace nPB, TCE and Perc, matching and surpassing cleaning performance without the safety concerns.

Precision-V™ vapor degreaser solvents are ideal replacements for AK-225 based cleaners, which were phased out due to the ozone depletion restrictions of the Montreal Protocol.
