flux not genuine – AMT Amtech Professional Soldering Flux (10ml) Reviews

posted by tombaugh on 03/19/2010 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
I ordered this product before and received genuine Amtech flux, with hologram and correct typesetting.
Cons:
What I got now is definitely not genuine. There is no hologram, the label has cuts and is not properly attached, and there are typesetting mistakes. Amtech flux sold on Ebay is usually fake, but apparently DealExtreme is now selling it as well.
Other:
Bottomline:
May do the job, but I won't be using it. There is some test results available on the web showing that the fake flux does not behave like the genuine Amtech one. Not that there was not problem whatsoever with my previous order, so if you are lucky you may receive a good product.
