Quickly and easily removed with in­line and batch cleaning system. Ideal water ­washable mask for closed-­loop systems. Safe for DI filter beds. 

WonderMASK WSOL has a number of useful applications in PCB assembly:

Thru-hole masking – Prevent soldering open holes in a wave soldering process by covering with WonderMASK. All of the masks listed below are well suited for this application.

Temporary component adhesive – WonderMASK can be used to tack down components on double-sided PCBs.

All Techspray WonderMASK products have the following advantages:

  • Withstands lead-free soldering temperatures up to 640°F (343°C) in wave soldering process
  • RoHS compliant

Features & Benefits

  • 100% water-soluble
  • Safe on ion beds & filters in closed-loop cleaning systems
  • Non-corrosive
  • Low odor

FAQ's

How do I avoid peelable solder mask from breaking off and leaving residue behind?

The follow are factor to consider when trying to avoid breakage: 1) Curing – Partially cured mask will have more of a tendency to break or leave residue. 2) Temperature and duration in extreme heat – Mask is designed for wave soldering, which is about a second of exposure to molten solder temperatures (generally 550°-650°F). If the mask is sent through a reflow oven the duration is much longer, which can lead to more mask brittleness. If the mask is exposed to high-temperature solder (e.g. silver), it can also lead to more brittleness. 3) Application method – When hand applying, we recommend holding the bottle at about a 60° angle, rather than upright at 90°. That tends to apply the material as a thick blanket over the areas to be masked. When the bottle is held at 90°, the mask is generally applied thinner, and is forced through holes and around components. Those thin areas are more likely to become brittle and stay behind, and mask pushed into holes and around components is harder to remove, so more likely to break.

How To Use Spot Mask for Wave Soldering & Conformal Coating
Say you’re a contract manufacturer of printed circuit boards (PCBs), and your customer just made an engineering change that leaves several thru-hole vias open. If you run it through the wave as is, and solder over the vacant holes, the PCB won’t function properly. How do you keep the p...
