This phenomenon is caused by a high amount of halogens (Cl, Br etc.) used in the flux activators or in the flux surfactants. We've seen effects creating all colors of the rainbow. Changing to No-Clean (halide-free) will eliminate this color effect.

Patrick told you why, But here is some more info for ya, I would absolutely not recommend that wires be tinned with OA. The residue will never get cleaned underneath the insulation and all of your strands will strt to break in the near/far future.

OK all you Gurus here's one for ya. Customer is tinning wires with standard eutectic solder in a solder pot. There is a blue tint to the solder in the pot. After tinning with OA flux, which I will change to NC shortly, he has clear teflon insulation

I made my own wave measuring device using KIC2000 system. KIC2000 has automatic wave detection, so now I have a profiler for both reflow ovens and wave solder. The delmat carrier only cost $500. A guy, Samir, from this forum gave me the idea, actu

5 Steps to Eliminate Bridges: 1. Establish (wave) Parallelism First and foremost, you must establish board-to-wave parallelism. This is the prerequisite to any wave solder process control. For an understanding of the power of this approach go to ht

Hi, I have a lot of solder bridge in our wave soldering process.We use SACX0307 and Surf 11 flux.the SW mashine is Vitronics delta 6622.Itry to change flux and termoprofile but results is not god.Can you halp me - recommend me some flux or other adv

Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha,me lad. Wave solder is like an onion, it's got many many layers. Kind of like me-self. I'm a big ogre with many complex layers. At any rate i like the other colleague with his adverstising trigger finger. by golly, me chap, he's a
