YOU MAY ASK:
WHY DO I NEED A FLUX?
Solder flux is the necessary ingredient in any solder operation. First it cleans the metal, then helps the solder flow properly when heated. It can be applied separate from the solder or be a part of the solder, contained in the core of the solder. There are different types of flux, first there is Acid. Acid flux is great, used mostly in commercial operations because it can be dangerous, and any excess flux MUST be completely removed or everything will corrode. The second flux most used is the Rosin flux, used a lot in the electronic business. Rosin flux works OK, but when used on electronics it also should be removed since it leaves behind a very sticky mess. On certain electronic circuits it MUST be removed because the rosin attracts water. And it can cause problems in very high speed electronics. Some type of cleaner must be used to remove the excess rosin from items, which in themselves can be dangerous. The other common type of flux is Organic Water Soluble flux. Organic flux has been around for some time, but not readily available to the general public.
