Yer not making this easy. What kind of flux? If no-clean flux, what controls are you using to assure you are: * Applying the correct amount of flux? * Properly activating the flux? If water washable flux, talk to us about your cleaning methods and

Sorry, the layer is made of flux.

I don't know the name of the flux. but is a no-clean solder paste.

Hi, Yes, I would hate to resort to cleaning, but the product must be clean. We have been using palettes to keep most of the flux off the PCB, but there is still residue around the connectors. Does anyone suggest a good no clean flux to use with le

Grant, Why don't you try a water-base flux which is No-clean, VOC-free also? I have tried the 270WR flux from AIM with good results even on lead-free process. My $0.02, George

Yikes!! In-line cleaning, to clean cosmetic and benign residues (from a NO-CLEAN) flux... You sure you can't switch fluxes? Another variable with residues is the solder mask. Depending on mask type (glossy, matte, semi-gloss, or semi-matte), will

Crystalline flux if it is really clear should not be a problem. We were using Amtech paste before and we have the same results. Sometimes we mistakenly see it as a dry joint because of the reflections from the lighting of our Metcal inspection system

Grant, Newer lead-free fluxes have 6%-10% solids content - more activator, therefore leave more "visible" residues. Old technology tin-lead fluxes got down to as low as around the 4%-6% range (I'm going off memory, so me might be wrong)... You'll

Hello Yannick, Have you brought this concern up with your supplier? I would recommend speaking with your flux and paste provider to gain additional insight and recommendations for resolving the concern. Good luck, Sean D.

Hi, I have noticed we are getting residue on our wave pcb's and it's worse with lead free, since we changed to the flux we are using. We are currently using Avantec VOC Free flux model Ecofree 303. It looks like it's made in Malaysia. Does anyone h
