NASHVILLE — September 27, 2016 —KYZEN announces that it was awarded a 2016 Global Technology Award in the category of Cleaning Materials for its AQUANOX® A8820 Advanced Aqueous Stencil Cleaner. The award was presented to the company during a Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2016 ceremony that took place at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL during SMTA International. This award marks KYZEN’s 55th industry award and its fourth consecutive award for A8820 since its introduction.
“When you have a product that outperforms the competition time and time again in today’s toughest cleaning challenges like cleaning no clean, it feels great to be recognized with this Global Technology Award,” said Tom Forsythe, Executive Vice President of KYZEN. “Our team of scientists care enough to continually test and improve products that work even in the smallest apertures, and A8820 is the successful result of that hard work.”
KYZEN’s AQUANOX® A8820 has been designed from the ground up for the tough challenges of cleaning no-clean, lead-free residue from small, 1005 apertures while being compatible with modern nano-coatings as well as with all of the modern offline cleaning equipment that is popular in the industry. A8820 is a quick drying product that also is rapidly rinsed if water rinsing is preferred.
AQUANOX® A8820 is an engineered Micro Cell Technology (MCT™) cleaning fluid designed to remove wet solder paste and uncured chip bonder adhesive from stencils used in surface mount printing processes. It effectively removes common solder pastes and fluxes, and demonstrates a favorable compatibility profile with stencil cleaning systems.
A8820 works well with spray-in-air and select ultrasonic cleaning machines, and is effective on uncured adhesives. Additionally, the no-foaming property of A8820 is compatible with all materials commonly used in electronic assembly manufacturing and cleaning processes.
Premiering in 2005, the Global Technology Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
