The Slow-Drying Citrus Flux Remover is a natural, biodegradable, PCB cleaning formulation made with citrus terpenes (not pine) and without surfactants. So, avoids the well-known flammability risks inherent in using old-style pine terpenes near white metals such as aluminum. The cleaner dries slowly, maximizing “tack time” and minimizing solvent consumption. It has a citrus aroma which is natural and generally non-toxic. But it requires good ventilation. Avoid prolonged skin contact to avoid localized, temporary skin irritation.  Neutral pH (not citric acid). The aerosol cans are both TriggerGrip™ Cleaning Tool compatible and StatZAP™ ESD Eliminator Tool compatible.
