Michael What you say is not a reason for washing. It is a reason to not use Can't Clean solder paste. Although I guess if they use the real name they wouldn't sell as much as they do by calling it No Clean.

Thanks for the kind words Dave. At no point in my reply was I trying to sell anything. I apologize to anyone who believes otherwise. I agree with the poster, if assemblies are going to be cleaned, consider a flux designed to be cleaned. While this is

Sorry to disappoint. No-Clean fluxes are resin-based. They are not soluble in water. Water soluble fluxes are by nature Organic Acid and are soluble in water AND must be cleaned within a short period after reflow as they remain conductive and corrosi

If you go even further, the flux residue actually isolates the joints from the surrounding atmosphere, so it is actually supposed to be there. Adding a step in your process that is obsolete, doesn't comply very good with the whole lean concept. I don

This is one of the most common questions I get asked. Why clean no-clean flux. It was stated earlier that no-clean residues are benign. This may or may not be accurate. It depends on several factors including the reflow process. In a perfect world, t
