Water Based Chemistries

Water-based chemistries are used in batch and in-line cleaning of PCB assemblies, in fluxes and solder pastes, and in other electronic materials such as masks and coatings and dispensed products such as adhesives. Water-based chemistries have their own range of issues in terms of processing and handling, corroded, ionic contamination and cleanliness considerations. Aggressive Organic Acid (OA) soldering fluxes are one example. Electrovert® systems are compatible with and deliver excellent results with water-based chemistries, including the Electrovert Aquastorm® cleaner that combines advanced cleaning technologies in both batch and in-line type cleaners, and the Electrovert MicroCel™ centrifugal cleaning system.
