  • Works at 240 C with no problems

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    For lead free reflow work, this stuff works as advertised. I've ordered some of the other tape on DX and they tend to melt at 200-210 C and I was less than impressed. This stuff doesn't melt even at 240-250 C which is the temperature I set the rework station at, and it helps keep/protect small components in place.

    Cons:

    Doesn't seem to stick when it comes into contact with the rosen flux I use.
    The last roll I got had too much tape adhesive on the side of the roll and it stuck to the plastic bag it was in.

    OtherThoughts:

    Can handle the higher temperatures of lead free soldering, but don't like waiting for it to arrive.

    Bottomline:

    Over the past year I've ordered a few rolls and the quality is fairly consistent. Buy it or get a roll of aluminum tape locally if you cant wait.
