Flux-Off Tri-V

Flux removal is critical to insure reliable circuitry. Not only unsightly, some flux residue can promote short circuits and corrosion, degrading or destroying the printed circuit board. Flux-Off Tri-V flux remover is specially formulated to remove all types of lead-free, rosin (types R, RA and RMA), no-clean, water soluble and synthetic (type SA) flux.

nPB Replacements for Greater Safety

n-propyl bromide (also known as nPB or 1-Bromopropane, CAS 106-94-5) is under close scrutiny by local and national government officials and health and safety managers because of safety concerns.

Studies have shown that exposure to nPB can cause negative neurological and reproductive effects. The National Toxicology Program (NTP) has stated that nPB is “reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen”, based on increased lung, large intestine and skin cancers observed in animal studies.

OSHA has issued a Hazard Alert detailing worker safety concerns. The American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) recommends a 10 ppm time-weighted average threshold limit, but has proposed a lower 0.1 ppm (ACGIH 2013).

Safety, regulatory and liability concerns are driving the change from nPB, and Chemtronics® has the ideal replacements with Tri-V™ High Performance Solvents. Electro-Wash® Tri-V, Max-Kleen™ Tri-V, and Flux-Off® Tri-V offer the cost and cleaning performance of nPB, but with much greater safety!
