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

    Pros:

    I use it as soldering flux solved in isopropyl alcohol.

    It can also be used to protect PCB from oxidation. For this I just dissolved as much colophonium in the alcohol as possible. After covering the PCB with this, it dries within 1 - 2 days to a glass-like, solderable cover.

    Cons:

    It's not too easy to get it out of the paper box. But that's the only con.

    OtherThoughts:

    It dissolves very easy when you put the bottle with the alcohol and colophonium in a bath of hot wather for fast use or if you need a higher concentration (like for covering PCB as protection).

    Bottomline:

    To clean fingers or cloths from colophonium, just use some alcohol - but especially in cloths, it's not easy to clean.
