Excellent flux! – Goot Super Soldering Flux Reviews

posted by Fossalta on 02/10/2009 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
No odd smells when soldering.
Not much fumes when soldering.
Also cleans copper very well using a piece of cotton ball for when you want to clean or solder on a dirty/old PCB.
VERY cheap! Local electronics store charges about 15 euro's for this amount of flux!
Lasts for a lifetime!
Cons:
The supplied bottle is pretty useless unless you are using q-tips.
Chinese label.
Maybe a bit too liquid-ish.. if it were a bit thicker it would stick nicer to soldering pads.
Other:
Make sure you get one of these: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.5068 and use a pair of needle-nose pliers to squeeze the tip. This way the flux won't come out when you hold it upside-down and you need to apply a little pressure for it to come out, hence not spilling any.
Bottomline:
Excellent flux for very little money!
