Why is it beneficial to use Detergent 8 when cleaning circuit boards and electronic components?
Detergent 8 contains no conductive metal cations, and therefore it cannot leave conductive residues. Its coupling ability keeps soils suspended in the cleaning solution, not on the circuit boards. If the solution is promptly washed away with deionized water, boards will meet the omega-meter or ionograph standards of cleanliness. Detergent 8 can be used in a variety of electronic applications, such as, cleaning glass substrate before dichloric coating of electronic parts, cleaning during manufacturing and assembly, cleaning electronic contacts and leads as well as ceramic insulators and components.
Detergent 8 can be used manually, soak or spray. For more information please visit http://www.alconox.com/downloads/pdf/techbull_detergent8.pdf.
