Printed Circuit Board Cleaning

Printed Circuit Board Cleaning

Why do PCB Assemblies need to be cleaned? 

The primary goal when cleaning PCB assemblies is to remove resin and flux residues from populated boards as well as production related residues caused by handling. Even though in many applications cleaning may not be necessary, in high-end applications such as aerospace, automotive, military or telecommunications the use of very specific cleaning agents may be required. 

How does this benefit your product? 

  • Improves the aesthetic appearance of the PCB
  • Prevents corrosion caused by acidic flux residues formed during production
  • Removes dust or other particles that may cause issues if the board is conformally coated
  • Ensures good surface resistance which impacts positively upon product lifespan
