Cleaners for Hard Disk Drive
Aqueous Ceramic Cleaner
AmberClean™ 527D is a biodegradable, aqueous cleaner which does not contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs). It is specifically formulated to flush and disperse ceramic fines and process contaminants from quartz and ceramic surfaces.
Additionally, the surfactant technology employed by AmberClean 527D is designed to cut through and remove aluminum oxide, ceria, diamond, silica and silicon carbide slurries and process chemicals from substrates without leaving films or residues. This formula should be diluted with deionized water and can be used in soak tanks, ultrasonic tanks and contact cleaning systems, in addition to high pressure spray cleaning equipment.
High Purity Neutral pH Cleaner with Stabilizer & Corrosion Inhibitors
AmberClean™ SC19 is a high-purity aqueous cleaner formulated with a unique built-in stabilizer which aids in maintaining a neutral pH (7.0) environment. This dual purpose formula excels in protecting against oxidation and corrosion of reactive metals such as cobalt, manganese, copper and iron, which are often used in the manufacture of advanced design heads. AmberClean SC19 effectively reduces surface tension, facilitates the removal of process fluid residues and other contaminants associated with the manufacture of microelectronic components, and will not leave films or residues.
Acidic Substrate Cleaner
AmberClean™ SCA56 is a biodegradable, low pH cleaner which does not contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs). It is specifically formulated to flush and disperse aluminum and other grinding fines from the surfaces in highly technical applications such as aluminum and nickel substrate fabrication. Additionally, the surfactant technology employed by AmberClean SCA56 is designed to rapidly convert aluminum surfaces from hydrophobic to hydrophilic and will not cause micro-pitting. AmberClean SCA56 can be used in soak tanks, spray/scrubber systems and ultrasonic cleaning systems.
