esoderberg: So, why do you want to clean your no-clean flux residues?

Hi, Walter, Why don't you try no-clean flux? We ever met the same condition, later, we changed to no-clean flux solved the problem.

If you are, in fact, running a No-Clean solder paste: Different no-clean solder pastes will leave different types of (benign) residues. If your paste has been qualified from a Bellcore/SIR/Electromigration standpoint, any residues remaining will NO

Hello Dr. Lee, Will no-clean fluxes be more of a challenge to develop?

Get the ionic specs from your flux manufacturer, and show it to the designer. No-clean flux/solder is supposed to be low to minimal in ionic contamination, which allow the whole no-clean thing. If he needs further proof, you can have the board io

KRIKIES, a designer insisting on cleaning no-clean residues! the BLAME-THE-PROCESS bandwagon travels everywhere, me lad!

A PCBA contains a couple of parts that are not sealed and can't be water washed. We hand solder these with no-clean after everything else is water washed. The designer says the no-clean residue must be completely removed so that it will not affect

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

I should have mentioned... the only flux we use for the hand soldering is wire-core, no bottle flux. I think it should be a non-issue to leave the activated wire core flux residue. I'm just looking for some way to prove it to the designer.

If the hand soldering is done right and you use little to no extra flux (other than whats in the solder wire) you should be ok. You should still verify with some testing however... You need to make sure any flux used is activated, thus rendered benig
