Weller Soldering Tip #7

by Andy on July 10, 2008

Flux Pen Liquid fluxes are often used to assist with soldering, and in most cases it’s because they are readily available. When using liquid fluxes, just make sure the flux is compatible with hand soldering. One common mistake in hand soldering applications is to use a liquid flux designed for a semi-automated process such as wave soldering. Those fluxes are not formulated for hand soldering, more specifically they are not designed for direct contact with a tip. Flux pens that are compatible with hand soldering applications will distribute the correct amount of flux each time the pen is used which leaves behind less residue and fewer solids.
