The shortage of isopropyl alcohol — recommended for disinfection during the COVID-19 pandemic —has left some electronics and medical device manufacturers short on cleaning products they normally use during and after production. Those who can find it are also finding much higher prices, according to an April article in the Wall Street Journal.
MicroCare (New Britain, Conn.) said today that it offers alternatives to isopropyl alcohol (IPA) that it claims clean just as well if not better. They include cleaning fluids such as the SuprClean heavy duty flux remover, ESD cleaning wipes and the No-Clean flux remover cleaning pen. Unlike IPA, their ingredients non-flammable.
“Because we have a strong supply chain and multiple manufacturing locations, we have the flexibility to produce our products and deliver as scheduled so customers can still achieve optimal cleaning results,” said MicroCare national sales manager Dan Sinclair in a news release.
