A wide range of contamination can be found on electronic assemblies. In addition to flux residue, you may find board surface and internal residues, component contamination, and of course, contamination transfer from board handling. The typical cleaning process when designed to clean the flux residue will remove the other residual contaminants that can lead to Electro Chemical Migration.



During this presentation, Loy will discuss:

  • Factors that impact cleanliness levels
  • Influencers to cleanability of a flux
  • Methodology
    • Solubility of the soil in the cleaning gent
    • Cleaning machine optimization
    • PCB is only as clean as the final rinse (chemical and mechanical impacts)
    • Material compatibility
    • Electrical test and chemical test validation
  • Cleaning Process Monitoring
  • Cleanliness Validation
