Precision Cleaners & Degreasers

Precision cleaners & degreasers are general purpose electronic cleaning solvents used for cleaning and removing grease, oil, dust or flux from delicate electronic assemblies. They do this by cleaning PCBs (printed circuit boards) and electronic equipment very thoroughly, leaving behind a clean dry surface with no residues.

How do degreasers work?
Degreasers can be applied onto the surface to be cleaned by spray, or you may immerse the surface and allow it to evaporate. Where necessary, remove any stubborn stains or grime with a foam-tipped bud or small brush. Precision cleaners and degreasers will typically dry naturally after use but you can accelerate the process by wiping the surface.

Why use precision cleaners & degreasers?
There are often requirements for industrial and electronic components to be cleaned. However, these particles are sometimes so small that they are not visible by eye. Alternatively, some oils and greases require certain chemicals to remove them, without damaging the object being cleaned.

What can you use them with?
Precision cleaners and degreasers will specify the devices they will clean. This may include:
Computers
Cameras
Optical and precision instruments
Components in electronic and video equipment
PCBs
Photocopier drums
Disc drives
Tape head

Types of cleaners & degreasers
Acetone
Isopropyl alcohol (IPA)
Rubbing alcohol
Deionised water
Foam

How are degreasers packaged?
The majority of our cleaners and degreasers come in a spray, aerosol, tin, bottle or a larger can. The packaging depends on the product type and how it is to be used.

Are they eco-friendly?
Some of the cleaners and degreasers that we sell are designed to be eco-friendly alternatives to CFC-based solvents.

Is degreaser flammable?
Some chemicals used in degreasers may be flammable, for example, IPA. Please refer to the datasheets for ingredients and the advice given for each product.
