    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Good for etch sensitive PCB's Cleaning up residue is simple with a hot, slightly damp rag.

    Great for re-tinning your old soldering iron tips after scrubbing.

    Cons:

    Not as good as other fluxes for difficult to solder surfaces unless preheated on an abrased surface first.

    Etchant takes a while at low temperatures to chemically clean a dirty copper surface, but this is not necessarily a con.

    OtherThoughts:

    Definitely a good product for electronics or jewelery that utilize easily solderable surfaces.

    Bottomline:

    150 grams is a lot of flux etchant paste for a small price.

    It's an OK mild paste suited to electronics work. But if you need to solder more difficult surfaces, get a plumbers grade flux from a hardware store.
