Aqueous Tech: Environmentally Safe Cleaner
Rancho Cucamonga, CA — Simple Green Stencil and Misprint Cleaner from Aqueous Technologies is described as exceptionally effective, providing superior cleaning performance in very short cycle times. Test reports reportedly confirm that the solution removed 100 percent of all solder paste in less than half the time of the leading competitor. And Simple Green is free rinsing, allowing its use in rinse or rinse-less stencil cleaning systems. According to the company, the product cuts through tough, dried-on solder paste and flux residues, and the company has found no other stencil cleaning product on the market that matches its cleaning performance. Yet, it causes no harm to any of the stencil's construction materials such as the aluminum frame, stainless steel or polyester screen and stainless steel, brass or nickel metal etched foil.

The cleaner's components are all low-toxicity compounds and the product contains no "solvents" which leads to an excellent worker's safety environment. All of the components are biodegradable, so they won't accumulate in the environment. The compound meets or exceeds current and reasonably anticipated VOC requirements (EPA, AQMD, SCAQMD). It also contains no Clean Air Act Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs), nor is it an RCRA hazardous waste in and of itself when disposed.

The cleaner is available in one gallon (3.8 liter), five gallon (18.9 liter), and 55-gallon (208 liter) containers for immersion cleaning applications — such as ultrasonic, and also in a 32-ounce (0.95 liter) trigger spray for manual stencil cleaning applications.
