ZESTRON to Present at the IPC/SMTA High Performance Cleaning and Coating Conference


 Manassas, VA - October 28, 2010  -  ZESTRON, the worldwide leading provider of high precision cleaning products and services for the electronics manufacturing industry, will present “Advancements Through pH-Neutral Cleaning Agent Formulations” at the IPC/SMTA High Performance Cleaning and Coating Conference held at the Renaissance Hotel & Convention Center in Schaumburg, IL, November 16-18, 2010.

As part of the afternoon session titled “Eco-centric Cleaning Processes,” ZESTRON’s presentation will highlight the many benefits of pH-neutral defluxing agents as well as the challenges associated with formulating products that are neither acidic nor alkaline.  During the past few years, many OEMs and CEMs have been moving towards implementing “greener” production processes to meet internal sustainability guidelines as well as stricter environmental regulations imposed by external sources.  With the development of pH-neutral defluxing agents in early 2009, alternative cleaning solutions are now available that not only provide excellent cleaning results but also mitigate material compatibility issues while eliminating any shipping, handling and waste water disposal concerns.
