Q. Why is it beneficial to use Detergent 8 when doing electronics cleaning like circuit boards and electronic components?

A. For electronics cleaning, Detergent 8® Low-Foaming Ion-Free Detergent no chelating agents, halides or conductive metal cations such as sodium,  and therefore it cannot leave conductive residues. Its coupling ability keeps soils suspended in the cleaning solution, not on the circuit boards. If the solution is promptly washed away with deionized water, boards will meet the omega-meter or ionograph standards of cleanliness.

Detergent 8 cleaner can be used in a variety of electronics cleaning applications, such as, cleaning glass substrate before dichloric coating of electronic parts, cleaning during manufacturing and assembly, cleaning electronic contacts and leads, as well as ceramic insulators and components.

Detergent 8 is low foaming and therefore can be used in a host of cleaning mechanisms and applications such as manually (including soaking and ultrasonic tansk) as well as washer/high pressure sprayers.
