AXAREL 32 DEFLUXER is a Semi-Aqueous Defluxer specially formulated with highly-refined aliphatic hydrocarbons to give the proper balance of selective solvency and high flash point. It is the standard AXAREL semi-aqueous defluxing product and is EPA/DoD/IPC Phase 2 approved. AXAREL 32 is very effective in removing ionic contamination and residual rosin from printed wiring assemblies when it is used in combination with water rinsing.

AXAREL 36 DEFLUXER is a Semi-Aqueous Defluxer specially formulated with highly-refined aliphatic hydrocarbons to permit fast separation from water in batch, closed-loop, semi-aqueous cleaning equipment. AXAREL 36 is very effective in removing ionic contamination and residual rosin from printed wiring assemblies when it is used in combination with water rinsing, and is EPA/DoD/IPC Phase 2 approved.

BIOACT EC-15 DEFLUXER is a Semi-Aqueous Defluxer, which is a blend of aliphatic esters, propylene glycol ethers and surfactants. It is ideal for cleaning after high temperature reflow commonly found in microelectronics production. EC-15 DEFLUXER was specially developed for removing baked or charred-on solder paste flux residues in semi-aqueous process equipment.

BIOACT EC-7 DEFLUXER is a blend of highly-refined terpenes and nonionic surface-active agents formulated to offer effective cleaning at ambient temperature and a high flux-loading capacity. It is ideal for removing rosin flux and reflowed solder paste residues from a variety of substrates.

BIOACT EC-ULTRA DEFLUXER is a Semi-Aqueous Defluxer, which is a blend of aliphatic esters and surfactants with a very low vapor pressure and essentially no odor. EC-ULTRA DEFLUXER was specifically designed to allow electronics manufacturers to meet stringent VOC emission limits.

BIOACT SC-10 MULTI-PURPOSE ELECTRONICS CLEANER is a blend of highly-refined aliphatic hydrocarbons, orange terpenes, and non-linear alcohols formulated to offer superior performance in stencil/misprint cleaning and defluxing applications. It is an ideal replacement for isopropanol (IPA) in hand wipe or immersion cleaning applications where performance, safety, and/or VOC emissions need to be improved.

BIOACT SE-10E CLEANER is a fast-acting, mild odor cleaning agent developed for removing all types of solder paste, including new epoxy paste, and uncured SMD adhesives from stencils and misprinted assemblies. BIOACT SE-10E Cleaner is a specially-formulated mixture of organic solvents which combines high solvency with fast evaporation relative to its high flash point (1260F, 520C). The product is non-ozone depleting.

BIOACT SC-22 ELECTRONICS CLEANER is a partially water-soluble, propylene glycol ether-based cleaning agent formulated to remove solder pastes and uncured SMD adhesives from stencils and misprints. It also works well in cleaning reflowed flux residues from assemblies. SC-22 CLEANER has a relatively high flash point (>1400F/600C) and very low vapor pressure.

BIOACT MSO Precision Cleaner is a specially selected blend of citrus terpenes and surface active agents designed to rinse freely, leaving a clean, residue-free surface. It is effective at removing a variety of soils including heavy oils and greases, adhesives, many resins, Cosmoline and uncured paints from surfaces. BIOACT MSO works well at room temperature and is a high-performance alternative to most d-limonene and surfactant blends on the market. BIOACT MSO is a certified California Clean Air Solvent when used at appropriate dilutions in water (contact Petroferm for details.) BIOACT MSO is readily biodegradable and all components are FDA-approved for use in food preparation areas.

BIOACT 200 Precision Cleaner is an amine-based formulation for removing paints, coatings, and adhesives. It is the BIOACT product of choice for removing most paints, as well as cyanoacrylate adhesive, photo resist, shellac, varnish and some epoxies.

BIOACT 280 Precision Cleaner is a non-hazardous, biodegradable blend of aliphatic esters and surface active agents designed especially for removing high melting point soils such as waxes, pitches, and fixturing compounds. Its high flash point (285ºF, 141ºC) and extremely low vapor pressure (.001 mm Hg) allow it to be used safely and with low environmental impact in applications where elevated bath temperatures are needed.

BIOACT 280 is approved and used by leading jet engine manufacturers and commercial airlines for removing masking wax during the manufacture and/or refurbishment of engine components. It is in widespread use for removing thermoplastic fixturing compounds such as the Rigidax™ brand. BIOACT 280 is also used to remove fixturing wax in optics and wafer industries.

AXAREL 52 Precision Cleaner is a blend of polar and non-polar solvents, surface active agents, and a corrosion inhibitor. AXAREL 52 is suitable for removing oils, greases, waxes, fingerprints, buffing and polishing compounds, fixturing agents, and other soils from a range of substrates. Its solvent-soluble corrosion inhibitor provides protection against flash rusting of ferrous metals during the cleaning process. AXAREL 52 is designed to separate from rinse water using a simple, heated decanter.

AXAREL 56 Precision Cleaner is the same formulation as AXAREL 52 except that it does not contain a corrosion inhibitor. Surfaces cleaned with AXAREL 56 can be rinsed absolutely free of residue. AXAREL 56 is well-suited for cleaning aluminum, brass or compatible plastics.

AXAREL 9100 Precision Cleaner is a hydrocarbon and ester blend designed to remove the same soils as noted in the AXAREL 52 section. AXAREL 9100 is suitable for use with or without a water rinse. In semi-aqueous applications, the product separates immediately from rinse water, allowing reuse of both materials. In non-aqueous applications, it may be advantageous to rinse AXAREL 9100 with a more volatile product such as AXAREL 4100 to speed drying of the parts.
