This is a real problem. We have experimented with a number of off the shelf products as well as discussed the issue with a few solder manufacturers. As you are aware IPA or Flux off can make the product look worse. I would discuss with the custome

Tombstone caused by flux residue

Hi Lloyd, Have you done any ionic analysis to find out what the flux residue is composed of? If you can eliminate the source residue, then your problem obviously should go away. Though tombstoning isn't known to be much of a functional problem it i

What size discrete components and have you evaluated your pad geometries? If pads are too far apart this will happen. The flux resudue is simply there because you didn't solder the component. It will stay on top of the solder bump. You can see this

Low standoff components, flux removal

Is there any field proven spray cleaning technique able to remove flux residues under OSRAM LEDs? Is it possible in principle? The problem is that OSRAM LEDs are low standoff ones and I absolutely have no idea how cleaning agent could get there. Mo

Same query: Do we really need to clean the board with when using RMA ? I've been told that aqeous is not needed to clean the board, what cleaner is suitable and how?

Talk about bucking the trend!!! OK, OK, I know some US military work still requires RMA. You�re both correct. Cleaning decisions for RMA fluxed boards are based on customers requirements. [Some do (clean) and some don�t.] Older US military speci

If I had to deal with this problem, I would switch to water soluble paste. It is a much more cost effective solution.

Hi, We use IPA and Prozone, if IPA is so drastically detrimental, to the pcba's.....what suggested alternative, can you please recommend, as IPA replacement? Thanks.

Zero flux or paste spattering?

Search the fine SMTnet Archives for background on solder on gold fingers. As we recall: * Paste selection * Proper reflow recipe tuning ... are important.

flux on PCB's after cleaning

Dear JSK, It sounds like the root causes of your problem are two fold. First, excessive heat will polymerize the abietic acid found in rosin forming neo-abietic diamers and polymers which are much less soluble than the parent monomer. There are
