not recommended: becomes conductive! – Goot Super Soldering Flux Reviews

posted by hoalo on 02/17/2010 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
- Makes corroded copper solderable. - Fairly big amount of flux for a cheap price.
Cons:
- Leaves dark residue after soldering. - Residue is CONDUCTIVE! - So it absolutely needs thorough cleaning after soldering if used on PCBs, which is not always possible (e.g. under ICs). => Not really usable on PCBs!
Other:
Well, it's really cheap, but I only can recommend it for coarse soldering jobs. Had to learn it the hard way.
Bottomline:
Buy it only if you really know the conductive residue will not be an issue.
