Is the AQUANOX Family Right for You? (Spoiler: YES)
You’ve heard us say it before, but we truly mean it when KYZEN says we care about clean. If you’ve had the chance to drop by our headquarters or had any insight on what goes on here, you’ll know that our experts are in the lab spending countless hours creating products that not only clean, but work in the field. We have been doing this for over 30 years and we don’t plan on stopping any time soon. In fact, our efforts have not been fruitless as over the course of those years we have won award after award for several products, including those in the AQUANOX line.
If you haven’t heard of this product line before, it is a family of concentrated aqueous cleaning chemistries designed for the Electronic Assembly, Aerospace, and Automotive industries. Each product in the line has been specially formulated for a variety of cleaning processes and soils centered around the reliability of printed circuit boards and electronic assemblies. This includes the award-winning A4625 and A4727. And while this is great, you might be wondering about the other AQUANOX products and whether they might be the right fit for you. Chance are, they are! Take a look at the whole family below and get to know what they can do for you.
A4727 – Enhanced Aqueous Assembly Cleaner
A4625 – Aqueous In-line Cleaning Solution
A4625B – Aqueous Batch Cleaning Solution
A4639 – Electronic Assembly Aqueous Solution
A4651US – Low pH Ultrasonic Immersion Cleaner
A4382 – OA Flux Residue Cleaning Chemistry
Keep in mind these are just a glimpse at the many products in the AQUANOX line. If you want to learn more about what we offer, your Regional Manager will be more than happy to give you the inside scoop.
Did You Know pH Cleaning Agents Can Impact Production?
Many companies work with pH cleaning agents whether in aqueous or solvent cleaning. And while this yields many benefits, it can also negatively impact the entire cleaning process if you do not understand what influences could impact reliability. KYZEN Global Product Line Manager, Debbie Carboni, explains the science behind maintaining a neutral pH and more in her latest technical paper, How pH Cleaning Agents Affect Production Performance.
“Over the last few years, there has been a significant focus on the pH of cleaning agents. This movement has been driven by the notion of pH and its influence on the environment and material compatibility on the assembly. The challenge is to find the right balance between cleaning agent design, performance, and the environmental impact of the entire cleaning process.”
