FEW NATIONAL air arms attract the attention of those interested in military aviation in the same way as does the Israel Defense Force/Air Force (IDF/AF) or Heyl Ha’Avir.

Comparative study of methods of washing and efficient removal of flux residues. Part 1

In the electronics industry to remove water-soluble flux residues widely used processes based on pure deionized water. However, the latest industry developments and customer experience have shown that these aqueous processes no longer provide the required levels of cleanliness and do not guarantee the long-term reliability of the assembly.


Systems wash with deionized (DI) water is becoming increasingly difficult to meet the requirements of cleanliness associated with increasing packing density of modern printed designs, the miniaturization of components and the increasing use of low-profile components. In addition, significantly increased the use of lead-free solders require higher temperature reflow. This
