WHAT ARE THE SOLDER FLUX TYPES AVAILABLE FOR SOLDERING IN ELECTRONICS?
Soldering is a complicated process – one that requires various intricate factors and processes to work together seamlessly in order to generate the desired output. Solder alloy is heated to create a conductive, reliable and strong joint between two metal surfaces. This joint actually is a metallurgical bond that needs to be resilient and electrically conductive. The chemical reaction responsible for the creation of this bond is dependent upon various factors, the most important of them being quality of the metal surfaces being joined. They should be free of dust, grime and oxidation &nda...

How to use a soldering iron flux?
How to use a soldering iron flux? What is the process that goes into soldering two surfaces? These questions seem to be little tricky and technical but they become easy to understand when you consider the end use of the process and how it is effected. Soldering iron flux plays an important role in the process of soldering, imperative for achieving an accurate and effective connection between two elements in an electronic circuit. Before moving on to see how to use it, it is first necessary to know what soldering is.      What is Soldering?Talking in layman language, it is a...

Benefits of Liquid soldering flux
Liquid solder flux is necessary in the soldering process, since solder does not always adhere properly to components because of the impurities and oxide buildup during soldering, resulting in poorly soldered joints, bridging, absence of joints and other soldering defects. Liquid soldering flux is an agent that fixes bonding issues, and with the right temperature, it ensures a properly formed joint. Flux acts to clean the impurities and oxides, which form as solder melts. After doing its job, it stays on the metal’s surface during the soldering process to prevent oxides from forming furth...

Beginners Guide on Liquid Soldering Flux
Soldering is an important aspect of electronics manufacturing, and to make it work, manufacturers must use an appropriate type of solder and flux. Solder will not always bond properly to components, resulting in common soldering issues such as solder bridging, bad solder joints and wetting issues. In some cases, it may not bind the joint at all. Hence, manufacturers add a flux agent and use it at the right temperature to resolve those issues. Liquid soldering flux reacts with oxide layers and cleans the metal surfaces to make them more suitable for soldering. It may provide a better solder bon...

Tips For Choosing The Right Soldering Iron And Accessories For Electronic Work
While basic soldering can be very simple and involve an iron solder, solder (and its melting), and connection of the components, there are still a number of choices available for the tips, power, and iron. This is so because the individual tasks/jobs of soldering may involve different temperatures, boards, and components and therefore one has to ensure that the right tools and processes are used and adapted to get the best outcomes. For instance, the size of the tip should match the size of the pad so that the heat transfer is maximum and fast. The right choice reduces the strain that affects ...

Safety Guidelines to Follow When Handling Liquid Soldering Flux
Liquid soldering flux is important in the SMT (surface mount technology) process when soldering electronic or electrical components because it enables solder to adhere to the metal while eliminating oxide buildup. It also helps spread the solder while minimizing surface tension and ensures defect-free soldering. Liquid soldering flux may contain rosin, a substance that can be hazardous. Hence, it is recommended to handle it carefully and to wear protective and safety gear during use. Some aspects in the formulation of liquid soldering flux produces a highly flammable vapor and liquid that may ...

Tips to Select the Best Soldering Equipment
For soldering enthusiasts, it is important to be aware of the best soldering equipment available in the market. Without the right kind of tools, the soldering process can be cumbersome, time consuming and frustrating as it can be ridden with errors.Coming in different shapes and sizes, soldering machines are available in the Indian markets in different sizes and shapes, with different functions. Available easily at reasonable prices in online markets in India, soldering stations and other equipment needs to be chosen carefully to ensure that the investment made is not a wasteful one. The follo...

Different Uses of a Selective Soldering Machine
                        A soldering iron is used for supplying cold heat to the metal parts which are to be joined. A chemical-based cleaner is used for preparing hot surfaces for the molten solder which is an alloy that is made from a non-ferrous metal. Soldering irons are used for several different applications and with so many different types of soldering station now available; it is easier to find a soldering iron for a specific application.Let us have a look at some of the most common uses of a soldering iron.Galvani...

Choosing Cored Wire for Robotic Soldering
Robotic soldering has helped improve the process of small and large scale PCB (printed circuit board) manufacturing while keeping production and labor costs low. Robotics has helped boost productivity, reduce rework, and improve the quality of electronic components and products, too, as it minimized or completely eliminated common issues in soldering, like spattering, bridging, and problems caused by human error. However, be sure to choose the right cored wire before automating the soldering process to maximize the high-speed assembly benefits of robotic soldering, and to be more confident in ...

A Guide to Different Types of Solder Flux
Soldering is an essential part of electronics assembly, as it ensures proper connections of components on the printed circuit board. It requires the use of an appropriate solder, which can sometimes be administered with a flux to ensure good joints and avoid problems like bad connections and failure to create a reliable joint. To prevent bonding issues, the soldering process involves a flux agent to facilitate soldering. When choosing solder flux, you need to consider the kind of circuit board you are using, the type and density of electronic components that must be soldered, the solder abilit...
