Good stuff – Just-Works Colophony Soldering Paste Reviews

posted by Fenki on 08/13/2011 Certified Owner

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.
Other:
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.
