824 - Isopropyl Alcohol
824 Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) liquid is a high-purity cleaner and solvent. That meets the Grade A standard for MIL Spec TT-I-735A and ASTM D770, ensuring that no contamination occurs from its use. As a cleaner, it is fully miscible in water and most organic fluids, making it good at dissolving dirt, light organic contaminants, and ionic flux residues. Since the 824 is highly anhydrous (without water) and hygroscopic (absorbs humidity), it readily scavenges water from surfaces, trapping it in the IPA solution as an azeotropic mixture. This helps to dehumidify the surface.
As a solvent, it acts as a moderate evaporation, plastic-safe diluent (see compatibility chart on page 3) and is used to improve the properties of paint resins and other heterogeneous solid mixtures. Therefore, it serves as a useful carrier solvent to adjust the rheological properties and compatibilities of complex mixtures. Due to IPA’s volatility, it resists entrapment in coatings. As it dries, it gives off a very light odor, which is not bothersome but serves as a cue to limit over-exposure caused by poor ventilation.
Applications and Uses
Because 824 is safe for most plastics, seals, ceramics, and printed circuit board components, it is used widely in the electronics industry. It is great for cleaning screens, stencils, fiber optics, cables, keypads, printed circuit board components, and electrical contacts and connectors. It is also used to clean oxides and grime on audio or video tape heads. It effectively removes light greases, oils, and flux without adding additional residues to contacts, relays, or circuit board connectors. It is quick drying relative to water. It can also be used to wash off more aggressive organic solvents such as acetone and toluene.
Consumer Product VOC Dilution Requirements
Residential or institutional users in California and other states (IL, IN, MI, OH, CT, DE, ME, MD, MA, NH, NJ, NY, PA, RI, VT, VA, DC, UT) with similar 75% VOC limits on electronics cleaners must dilute the product 3:1 with water or acetone prior to use.
