Cheap, but fake – AMT Amtech Professional Soldering Flux (10ml) Reviews

posted by NiTr0 on 04/11/2010 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Cheap flux, may be enough good for lead SMD. For me, it makes better solder than cheapest vaseline-based flux, but it completely vapored for 1-2 minutes at 220-240C on lead-free boards.
Cons:
1) This is fake, made in China (not USA), without hologram
2) Type is RMA-223, not RMA-223-UV
Other:
Sadly that DX doesn't check products for corresponding it's specifications on site.
Bottomline:
I haven't any spelling errors on label that are reported by other consmers, so I think that there are some different vendors of this fake RMA-223, with slightly different quality, so buying it is like russian roulette.
