WSOL and solder pot

I recently witnessed a process in which the solder pot operator used Techspray WSOL water soluble masking to cover the areas around a connector that was to be soldered on the solder pot. He did not wait for the WSOL to cure. He soldered immediately.

The way it works is the liquid solder immediatley cures (or should I say burns) the WSOL where ever it touches it. This hardens and keeps it in place and protects whatever is under it. Some of the WSOL falls of in the pot. I am suprised that the burn

If the mask is not cured and is coming off in the pot I don't see how it is protecting anything. If you want to mask something fast you need to use tape not liquid mask that requires cure. My $.02.

Poor training. Don't blame the operator, he was either shown this or left to his own devices. Be the better man and provide him a better process. Regular old peelabale solder mask would be a start.

I witnessed this at our sister company. It seems to be their standard process. It is not my place to interfere with their processes. I was just curious if there was any chance of brittle solder joints or other defects that might be caused from the WS

I can't seem to locate any information/concerns about moisture entrapment in IC packages on the promary side in a double sided SMT assembly using water soluable solder paste when soldering the second side. A typical process would assemble/reflow/cle

You have a lot to think about! What does the flux manufacturer recommend as far as specifics like water temp or pressure? Do they recommend high temp di-water a detergent or saponifier? Do you currently have a cleaning machine, batch cleaner or inl

Hi everyone, We just got our first wave soldering machine operational (novastar 8s) and its working great. I'm just a little unsure about how to best maintain the foam fluxer daily. Do you drain it from the machine each day or just cover the flux t
