Sounds like possibly too little preheat. Russ

WSOL and solder pot

Electronics Forum | Wed Mar 12 12:28:52 EDT 2008 | operator

I recently witnessed a process in which the solder pot operator used Techspray WSOL water soluble masking to cover the areas around a connector that was to be soldered on the solder pot. He did not wait for the WSOL to cure. He soldered immediately.

Poor training. Don't blame the operator, he was either shown this or left to his own devices. Be the better man and provide him a better process. Regular old peelabale solder mask would be a start.

The way it works is the liquid solder immediatley cures (or should I say burns) the WSOL where ever it touches it. This hardens and keeps it in place and protects whatever is under it. Some of the WSOL falls of in the pot. I am suprised that the burn

Altitude and solder voids

Electronics Forum | Thu Nov 01 10:57:34 EDT 2012 | kris1128

Has anyone heard whether the elevation of a plant can effect solder joint formation? One plant at sea level, one at 7,000 feet elevation... same equipment and profiles, big voiding defects at higher elevation. I did a search and found no similar post

solder balls and flux

My company is just getting into the flip chip packaging arena. We are putting in a prototype/small volume wire bond PBGA line. We have some questions with regard to choosing solder balls and cleaning of flux. 1) Is there a formula for the shrink

I witnessed this at our sister company. It seems to be their standard process. It is not my place to interfere with their processes. I was just curious if there was any chance of brittle solder joints or other defects that might be caused from the WS

If the mask is not cured and is coming off in the pot I don't see how it is protecting anything. If you want to mask something fast you need to use tape not liquid mask that requires cure. My $.02.

0201 solder beading

Have you seen any solder beading (balling) with the aperture sizes you have been using on 0201 components? Have you experimented with some of the solder bead reducing designs?
