Polar Flux Remover

Polar Flux Remover is a very good cleaner for removing heavy or age-hardened fluxes. It is a strong defluxer that works particularly well on R, RA and RMA fluxes. It removes polar and ionic activators that other cleaners can’t. It also is an excellent silicone remover.

It rapidly penetrates and dissolves white residue and dries residue-free. Plus, it has a slow drying time which allows technicians to work bigger surface areas with less fluid.

Use the Polar Flux Remover to clean a variety of components. For example, printed circuit boards, FR-4, components, connectors, cables, and mechanical assemblies. In addition, it also removes all types of pastes, inks, finger prints, oxides, oils and grease.

It is ideally suited for rework, repair and post-flow assembly operations. However, it is strong and should be tested first if using on soft plastic components.

The aerosol can is both TriggerGrip™ Cleaning Tool compatible and StatZAP™ ESD Eliminator Tool compatible. It also comes in a time-saving, pocket-sized cleaning pen.
