        Louis, i was talking to another forum member that bought 99% ipa from ebay and got a saltly like residue left behind after using ipa. Have you ever experienced this?

        What i found online is that ipa can have water removed via a process called 'salting out'. I would not put it past some ebay sellers to low quality ipa with improperly treated ipa that has a higher than normal sodium level after processing.

        Any thoughts on the salt like residue. Ive personally experienced, but was long ago. Just remember thinking how weird it was.

      Branson EC, IPA 99,99%, laboratory grade distilled water. That's for cleaning and reworking boards.
      I use Un-Du (VOC free) to remove MacBook Retina batteries, but specially for iPad batteries without need to torch them and Sumo-wrestle them out of the device.
