JNJ Now Sole Source for BIOACT Cleaning Wipe
Bioact and saturated wipes.
Franklin, MA — JNJ Industries is now the sole source for disposable cleaning wipes pre-saturated with popular BIOACT® SC-10, an environmentally "green" cleaning and degreasing solvent. BIOACT SC-10, a product of Petroferm, Inc., is a blend of highly-refined aliphatic hydrocarbons, orange terpenes, and linear alcohols formulated to offer superior performance in degreasing and cleaning electronic materials including fluxes, solder pastes, and adhesives.

JNJ Industries has offered these popular pre-saturated cleaning wipes — SuperSaturated SmartWipes® for nearly 10 years as part of its GlobalTech® family of environmentally-responsible cleaning products. Petroferm has decided to discontinue offering BIOACT in its own brand of pre-saturated wipe, and is referring customers and distributors to JNJ.

The SuperSaturated SmartWipes are an excellent alternative to using Isopropanol (IPA), Axarel®, and other chemistries used in hand wipe cleaning applications. The wipes are 100 percent polyester material, precisely saturated with BIOACT SC-10 for optimal manual cleaning. They are effective in removing all types of solder pastes, uncured encapsulants, silicone, conformal coatings, epoxy, tape residues, SMT adhesives and many other contaminants. BIOACT SC-10 cleans better than IPA, yet has a milder odor, reduced flammability, and no VOC content of IPA.

The SuperSaturated SmartWipes are tough, lint-free, disposable wipes pre-saturated with a choice of solutions and packaged in handy re-sealable containers. They are designed to be used at the workbench or in the assembly line. They are available in re-closable canisters of 100 wipes. GlobalTech BIOACT SC-10 BIOACT SC-10, like all GlobalTech solvents, is offered in several convenient packaging styles: saturated wipes, foil refill packs, spray bottles, gallons, and drums.
