Isopropyl alcohol (CAS #67-63-0) is also referred to as IPA, isopropanol, and 2-propanol is going to be in short supply in the coming weeks or months because of the COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) pandemic. That may leave companies using IPA for flux removal, stencil cleaning, and industrial degreasing in a difficult supply situation.
Techspray offers alternatives to isopropyl alcohol for...
- Electronic printed circuit board (PCB) assembly
- Removal of solder paste or adhesive from SMT stencils
- Maintenance cleaning of SMT reflow ovens
- Flux removal from wave soldering fingers, selective soldering nozzles, pallets
- Industrial degreasing
Techspray alternatives are as effective if not more powerful, and in many cases have advantages like nonflammability and lower environmental impact. Please note these products do not have antiviral properties, so cannot be used to replace IPA for surface cleaning to kill COVID-19.
