OptiClear is the original, award winning, nontoxic, nonflammable, biodegradable solvent from National Diagnostics. OptiClear is intended for the removal of wax, pitch, flux, grease, resin and solvent soluble resists from optical and electronic components of glass, ceramic, or metal.
OptiClear may be substituted directly for toluene, xylene or chlorinated hydrocarbons, such as trichloroethylene (TCE), in batch-type or ultrasonic cleaners with no alteration in protocol. OptiClear removes wax adhered to lenses, optical components, polished wafers or printed circuit boards.
OptiClear has high solvency power, yet it will not affect metal or metal alloy. OptiClear also has a neutral pH, so it will not stain glass. The water content of OptiClear is less than 50 ppm. It is miscible in all proportions with acetone, ethanol, and isopropanol, any of which may be used as a post wash.
- Use undiluted.
- Set up an OptiClear bath at room temperature. Soak components for 15 minutes to 1 hour. For lighter cleaning applications, OptiClear can be used as a spray.
- Remove components from bath and allow OptiClear to evaporate.
- If excessive residue remains, rinse in OptiClear R (OE-102)
