ArctiClean Heatsink Thermal Material Remover Surface Purifier - 60ml Kit - (30ml+30ml)
Product Description & Info:
Introducing ArctiClean, the first retail product to emerge from the union of Arctic Silver and Nanotherm technology.
ArctiClean has ant-corrosive properties as well as purifying agents that help reduce corrosions as well as remove residue from cleaning solution thus increasing
cooling performance by providing excellent heat transfer.
ArctiClean CPU cleanner & heat sink cleaner and surface purifier is a two-step cleaning process that removes existing thermal grease or pads and prepares the
thermal surface for a fresh application of thermal interface material.
Why Not Just Use Isopropyl Alcohol or Acetone?
Put isopropyl alcohol or acetone on a thermal pad and 10 minutes later you will have...
A thermal pad. Only with a lot of rubbing and scrubbing will you be able to remove the pad. While the alcohol or acetone may soften the pad, neither actually
dissolves the pad. Although less visible, it is the same cleaning thermal greases with alcohol or acetone. ArctiClean 1 totally emulsifies thermal pads and thermal
greases. The waxes, oils, and fillers of the thermal material are suspended within the ArctiClean 1 so they can be cleaned off completely. This emulsification allow
ArctiClean to remove the thermal material in the microscopic imperfections in the heatsink or heat spreader that non-emulsifying cleaners cannot touch. The flash
corrosion inhibitors in ArctiClean 2 then significantly reduce the corrosion layer on the copper or aluminum, improving the interface between the metal and the
new thermal material and maximizing thermal transfer.
Features Unique 2-Step Process:
ArctiClean 1 Thermal Material Remover quickly emulsifies and dissolves the existing thermal grease or pad from the CPU and/or heatsink so that it can easily be
removed with a clean cloth or paper towel. A few drops of ArctiClean 2 Thermal Surface Purifier and some gentle wiping then removes the remaining residue and
inhibits flash corrosion on copper or aluminum.
ArctiClean 1 Thermal Material Remover:
ArctiClean 1 uses a proprietary combination of non-toxic biodegradable solvents to emulsify thermal greases or thermal pads. The citrus and soy based solvents
in ArctiClean 1 match or exceed many hazardous and volatile solvents such as fluorinated and chlorinated organic solvents, acetone, MEK (methyl ethyl ketone),
mineral spirits, isopropyl alcohol, and toluene.
ArctiClean 2 Thermal Surface Purifier:
The cationic surfactants in ArctiClean 2 remove any residue left by the ArctiClean 1 leaving a pristine surface for the application of a new thermal interface
material. It also incorporates advanced flash corrosion inhibitors that minimize the corrosion layer on copper and aluminum allowing for more intimate contact
between the thermal interface material and the heatsink.
Using ArctiClean 2 With Other Solvents:
Most solvents and cleaning products leave residue on the CPU and heatsink that negatively affects the performance of any subsequently applied thermal
interface material. ArctiClean 1 Thermal Surface Purifier removes the residue of citrus or petroleum based cleaners and inhibits flash corrosion on a copper or
