In the following thread, http://www.smtnet.com/electronicsforum/view_message.cfm?message=9584& John Thorup touched on some applications where no-clean fluxes could be a bad idea. I'm looking for some more detailed info. (papers, references, texts

Ahhhh, Dave, I'm glad I can still count on you for some real cutting edge info. yuck, yuck. Believe me, there's a lot more information available on how to resolve no-clean issues than there is on how to keep this stupid board wash/DI/Stencil wash/

It realy depends on what no-clean you use, I had on that would get under IC's and not get fully activated it was fine here in the states but when it was shipped over seas the salt air and humidity gave us fits, another we used didnt have that problem

I cannot give references to papers, etc, but I can tell you from experience that High Impedance circuits and High Power RF circuits are not something to try no-clean on. For an aerospace customer, I had a circuit that any residue left between two pa

At my last place of employment, that was the big reason why nobody (especially the Design Engineers) bought into a no-clean process - interference with high-impedance circuits. One guy was so paranoid about flux residues remaining on the board, that

Steve, Water-soluble fluxes are per definition very corrosive and need to be cleaned (read the data sheet) Encapsulation will prevent humidity reaching the water-soluble acids but will not prevent reducing the metals the flux is in contact with to m
