Technical Data Sheet
Flux-Off Aqueous
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Flux-Off Aqueous is ideally formulated for
flux removal in ultrasonic and in-line
cleaning systems. It is an excellent cleaner
for the removal of all rosin and no clean flux
types from electronic subassemblies, printed
circuit boards and all other electronic
components. This concentrated formula can
also be diluted 1:10 with deionized water for
handling all cleaning applications. Flux-Off
Aqueous will effectively remove other
contaminants such as dirt, grease, handling
soils and molding compounds.

USAGE INSTRUCTIONS:
For industrial use only.
Read MSDS carefully prior to use.
Dilute 1:10 with deionized water for general
cleaning. Can be used in hot or cold
immersion, ultrasonic or aqueous cleaning
systems. For immersion systems, soak as
necessary. For ultrasonic cleaning, add
Flux-Off Aqueous to the ultrasonic
cleaning tank, allow about two minutes for
the mixture to degas, and immerse the part to
be cleaned in the ultrasonic cleaner. After
cleaning, rinse parts in de-ionized water and
dry where required.
