When manufacturing/assembling PCBs, several residues may remain on the board, posing threat to the efficiency and durability of the final assembly. IPC (the Association Connecting Electronics Industries) has proposed several guidelines that guide you clean PCBs efficiently.
IPC lists several contaminants that affect the performance and service life of PCBs. According to IPC, the following contaminants must be removed from the board, utilizing cleaning techniques that are safe to workers and are environmentally sustainable.
Consider the following when cleaning PCBs.
Debris can hamper the operational excellence and efficiency of PCBs. Also, messiness in the PCB will lead to its malfunction in the near future. Hence, IPC strongly emphasis on the need of cleaning PCBs, whilst not damaging them during the process. You can follow manual or bench top cleaning, ultrasonic and batch immersion cleaning, and spray-in-air cleaning method. However the selection of the cleaning process must be depended on the kind of the PCB materials, assembly process used, and types of components installed.
