Specialty fluids are used extensively by the electronics industry in the cleaning and protection of printed circuit boards (PCBs) and hybrid circuits.
Flux deposits are notoriously difficult to clean given the tight stand offs between the substrate and component. 3M™ Novec™ cleaning fluids have very low surface tension and are able to penetrate and remove contaminants efficiently.
To protect electronic devices and displays Acota has a range of surface modifier products which can be applied to circuit boards; flexi circuits and hybrid circuits to protect against corrosion and airborne contamination. Products have also been developed to apply to displays to impart an easy to clean, smudge-free surface which has a lubricious and easy-glide feel.
