For customers who use water-soluble flux, or their own flux for aqueous processes.

Desoldering braid or desoldering wick is a pre-fluxed copper braid that is used to remove solder, which allows components to be replaced and excess solder (e.g. bridging) to be removed. The soldering iron is applied to the wick as it sits on the solder joint, and when both are brought up to the solder's melting point, the flux is activated and, through capillary action from the braided design, solder is drawn up the wick. Techspray wick has been a mainstay at PCB rework, repair and prototyping stations for over 30-years.

Ultimate Guide to Electronic Soldering
What is soldering? Soldering is the joining of two metal surfaces mechanically and electrically, with the use of metal called solder (pronounced “sodder”). Solder secures the connection so it doesn’t break loose from vibration, other mechanical forces and provides electrical conti...

5 Best Practices for Cleaning High Reliability PCBs
Aerosol cleaning introduces a continuous supply of clean, unused solvent throughout the entire bench cleaning process of printed circuit boards (PCBs). Aerosol cleaning prevents the introduction of new contaminants. While there are some obvious pros of aerosol cleaning, questions remain as to whethe...
