CYBERSOLV® C8508 is the latest generation spray cleaner for reflow ovens and general equipment maintenance cleaning. C8508 has been tested on the toughest baked on flux residues with great success and has proven effective on the latest lead free flux.
Cybersolv C8508 is a non-flammable solvent maintenance cleaning fluid designed to remove flux residues from reflow oven surfaces, wave soldering fingers and pallets. Metal spring loaded fingers are used to hold and track printed circuit boards over a solder bath during the wave soldering process. Prior to soldering, liquid fluxes are applied to the bottom side of the circuit board using foaming and spray application methods. Overspray from the liquid fluxes adheres to wave fingers and pallets. Over time, the over spray flux must be cleaned.
Cybersolv C8508 solvency make-up is engineered with a mixture of oxygenated solvents and water. The solvents are specifically selected based on their affinity for rosin, no-clean and water soluble wave solder flux residues. Wave soldering machines are equipped with a fluid chamber and brushes to removed flux residues following the soldering process. C8508 is used full strength. The composition dissolves the flux residues and dries evenly without the need for a rinse.
Cybersolv C8508 is also effective at cleaning wave soldering pallets. The product is designed to be full strength in immersion systems using spray-under-immersion or ultrasonic agitation. The product is effective at ambient temperatures. If the residues are burnt or charred, heating the solution to 50-60°C improves cleaning performance. Following the cleaning step, the pallets should be rinsed with DI water and dried.
