Soldering Iron Flux
- Flux is a chemical cleaning agent used before and during the soldering process of electronic components onto circuit boards.
- it is used in both manual hand soldering as well as the different automated processes used by PCB contract manufacturers.
- The main purpose of the flux is to prepare the metal surfaces for soldering by cleaning and removing any oxides and impurities.
- Oxides are formed when metal is exposed to air and may prevent the formation of good solder joints.
- The flux also protects the metal surfaces from re-oxidation during soldering and helps the soldering process by altering the surface tension of the molten solder.
- Flux is made up of a base material and an activator which is the chemical that promotes better wetting of the solder by removing oxides from the metal.
- It also contains other solvents and additives to help with the soldering process as well as inhibiting corrosion.
- Flux may be solid, pasty, or liquid in form depending on how and where it will be used.
- For hand soldering, flux can be applied by a flux pen or is usually in the core of the solder wire that most technicians use.
- For the automated soldering processes used by CMs during printed circuit board manufacturing, there are a couple of different ways that the flux will be applied.
