core solder - A highly active inorganic acid
type of flux (zinc chloride free) for general purpose
soldering applications where a flux cored solder wire
is desirable. Rapid soldering can be accomplished on all
common metals except aluminum and manganese. Acid core
solder is particularly useful for soldering excessively
Please be advised that
acid core solder is NOT recommended for electrical or
electronic soldering applications due to the corrosive
nature of the residue.
Acid core is available
in many alloys. The following are some of the most commonly
is hygroscopic and corrosive. The work should be allowed
to cool undisturbed until the solder solidifies. The flux
residue is then removed with a hot water rinse. For more
thorough cleaning requirements, rinse with a 2-10% solution
of neutralizer followed by a hot water rinse.
Core Solder - Our rosin core solders exceed
all military, government, and J-STD-006 specifications
for electronic and industrial soldering. These solders
are available in tin/lead and lead free alloys, and are
manufactured with non-activated and activated rosin fluxes
that are non-corrosive, non-hygroscopic and fungus resistant.
Solu-Core Water Washable Core
Solder - Solu-Core is a halogen-free organic
flux core solder. It is formulated for use where a halide
containing flux is too corrosive. This organic core solder
provides faster and better fluxing than activated rosin
in typical hand soldering. This high mobility results
in increased productivity. After soldering, the residues
can be removed with hot water (50°C and higher). No
soap or detergent is required.
Low Residue (No-Clean-Core) Solder - Clean-Core
solder alloys contain a low-residue, high purity synthetic
resin with a very effective non-halogen activating system.
After soldering, the flux residues remain clear, non-conductive,
non-corrosive and non-hygroscopic. Clean-Core was developed
for use on electronic assemblies where post solder cleaning
is not required, or where removal of the residues with
hazardous chemicals is not feasible. The clear residue
should be left on the board. Please refer to Material
Safety Data Sheet before using this product.
