  • 60/40 2% Rosin Core Flux

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    It's 60/40, ideal for hobbyists (ROHS Solder can be a nightmare!)

    I've been getting some good joints and beads with this solder, mind you I only used it for a couple projects (mainly to test it out)

    Cons:

    The cylinders come half full, some with more solder than others.

    Price is not top notch, I can get these by almost the same amount of cash in almost any electronics store, however as everyone knows these are handy on a toolbox, not on the workbench -- If you solder a lot buy a spool!

    OtherThoughts:

    The flux does not smell like rosin, in fact I've been wondering if it isn't in fact an acid flux.

    It's actually got less flux than the regular "multi-core" you might be able to find somewhere else ( this is 2%, or so they say ) so regulate your temperature accordingly, or you'll need extra flux!

    I've yet to test it's electrical properties compared to some good known brands though.

    Bottomline:

    Good enough to keep a couple of these in each toolbox, but the price is nothing special at all.
