2 Vertrel ® - Case History 2 Background l l AMT manufactures high-power radio frequency (RF) power amplifier systems for scientific, medical and wireless applications. l l Due to the high-tech applications, extreme cleanliness of all the electronic subassemblies is essential. l l Purpose is to remove RMA flux residues, especially on vulnerable capacitor chips M-2 Service Chimie  : 5 place de l ’é glise, 77400 Saint Thibault des vignes  : (33) 01 64 30 89 22  : (33) 01 64 30 87 49 : service.chimie@wanadoo.fr

3 Vertrel ® - Case History 2 Previous Process l l Co-solvent process in a Detrex AVD 212 vapor degreaser, with PFC 5060 as rinsing agent (30/70 wt%). l l Cleaning performance was globally satisfactory, but: l l excessive rinse agent use l l odor of solvating agent l l rinsing step not entirely satisfactory l l careful orientation of circuit boards needed l l sometimes critical cleaning of wire assemblies M-3 Service Chimie  : 5 place de l ’é glise, 77400 Saint Thibault des vignes  : (33) 01 64 30 89 22  : (33) 01 64 30 87 49 : service.chimie@wanadoo.fr

4 Vertrel ® - Case History 2 Alternative Chemistry Solution l l Tests were conducted with Vertrel ® SMT and XMS Plus l l Stringent tests due to 9 days waiting before cleaning l l Both products showed significant better results than the co-solvent process in use l l Slight advantage for Vertrel ® XMS M-4 Service Chimie  : 5 place de l ’é glise, 77400 Saint Thibault des vignes  : (33) 01 64 30 89 22  : (33) 01 64 30 87 49 : service.chimie@wanadoo.fr

5 Vertrel ® - Case History 2 The New Process l l AMT kept its existing Detrex AVD machine, with only a few minor technical modifications l l Key advantages of the new system are: single azeotropic solvent improved cleanliness, including for wire assemblies operator acceptance (no odor, better performance) simplified equipment (no mixing needed anymore) lower boiling point, thus quicker availability of the parts for further processing M-5 Service Chimie  : 5 place de l ’é glise, 77400 Saint Thibault des vignes  : (33) 01 64 30 89 22  : (33) 01 64 30 87 49 : service.chimie@wanadoo.fr
