TF: Cleaning - No-clean

“No-clean” indicates cleaning method as defined by IPC standard and does not mean that the flux leaves no residue. No-clean rather means that the flux can be left on PCB for several consecutive SMT assemblies but also won’t cause corrosion if left indefinitely. However, cleaning can be necessary and it is desirable. No-clean fluxes are easily removed using industrial solvents in ultrasonic devices or using commercially available flux residue removers like STIRRI HydraSweep™.
