Weller Soldering Tip #4

by Andy on June 19, 2008

Fluxes containing a “high solids content” are one of the largest contributors to surface contamination, which leads to the blackening or charring of fluxes on a soldering iron tip. This in turn, can cause a tip to be rendered useless in a matter of hours, if not minutes. If proper research is done, solder manufacturer’s technical data sheets or MSDS sheets will indicate the % of solids. Extremely high temperatures will also accelerate the surface contamination process.
