Top brand, low price. – AMT Amtech Professional Soldering Flux (10ml) Reviews

Genuine AMTech soldering flux for an excellent price. Nice and creamy consistency so it stays put and doesn't run. Well blended like a lotion. It's pine flux, so there's a great pine smell.
Washable with contact cleaner so easy to remove. If you get it on your hands and it dries, it's not sappy, but a little tacky.
Comes in one of those 'special' tubes that require you to buy the 'special' plunger or use it with a pneumatic dispensing system.
You can find this on AMTech's page under their tacky fluxes. Strange though that the DX pictures shows it as a RM-223-UV where AMT shows it ending in TF (tacky flux).
Also strange that it ships from CT to HK and back to the US for such a low price.
AMT says the RM223TF is for BGA reballing, but it's a great solder for general purpose use too.
Get this if you need soldering flux. Do what I did and tranfer it to another syringe with a needle. I used 3cc vet syringes with a 22G needle with the point removed.
How can you beat this quality of flux for this price? You can't unless you steal it.
