This RS PRO IPA liquid is a highly effective, general-purpose solvent that is used as a cleaning solution for removing dirt, oil and grease from different materials and components, like fragile and sensitive electronics, PCBs (Printed Circuit Boards) or other peripherals.

Features and Benefits:

  • This RS PRO isopropyl alcohol cleaning and degreasing solution is an ideal alternative to CFC-based solvents that less environmentally friendly
  • The non-aggressive cleaner is ideal for cleaning sensitive electronics, PCBs and peripherals without damage and leaves no residue
  • This IPA solution is also safe for use on most plastics, making it an ideal all-purpose cleaner and degreaser for multiple applications
  • Safely removes flux from PCBs
  • Completely miscible with water for easy dilution if required

Applications:

Isopropyl alcohol (IPA), more commonly known as rubbing alcohol or isopropanol, is a general-purpose cleaner that can kill bacteria and degrease without being harmful to sensitive electrical components, or even human skin. Its a very versatile cleaning solution that is used in many industrial applications, as well as in the medical industry to ensure there is a clean, bacteria-free and grease-free surface to work with. Isopropyl alcohol cleaner can be used on a wide variety of products like:

  • PCBs
  • Electronics and electronic components
  • Connectors
  • Fibre optics
  • LCD panels

Is this IPA cleaner flammable?

Yes, the isopropyl solution is flammable and contains alcohol, so it is important to ensure the solution is kept away from heat sources or sources of ignition. The solution has got an odour to it to ensure over-exposure is monitored when using it, especially in poorly ventilated areas.
