TraceTech board repair system allows any level of technician to quickly perform quality board repairs in-house without the use of expensive equipment or time-consuming and unsightly jumpers. Meets IPC board repair standards. Other TraceTech pens are available to allow quick, convenient, and high-quality board repair and rework.
TraceTech No-clean Flux Pen - Formulated to perform at the elevated temperatures of lead-free soldering but is also effective for tin-lead soldering as well. It's designed with a low surface tension to prevent bridging. Post-soldering cleaning is optional because the light residue left after soldering is barely noticeable, is non-corrosive, and is halide free.
TraceTech Flux Remover Pen - Provides convenient touch-up cleaning of flux residues, including R, RMA, SA, and no-clean fluxes.
TraceTech Conductive Pen - It allows you to literally redraw the trace, because it contains highly conductive silver suspended in a liquid polymer.
TraceTech Green Overcoat Pen - This pen contains green acrylic conformal coating, which can insulate circuit board traces and components against high voltage arcing and provides excellent protection from moisture and fungus.
TraceTech Conformal Coating Remover Pen - Allows you to remove a tight area of coating around a repair area without affecting the rest of the PCB.
Not always, but that depends on the design and end-use of the printed circuit board (PCB). Solder mask (also called resist and overcoat) is used to isolate conductive areas of the PCB by covering them with an insulative layer. It also stops solder from wetting (flowing) beyond contact areas, so prevents bridging and other soldering defects.
