German flux manufacturer Emil Otto GmbH continues to expand its product portfolio and brings an additional flux to market with the new alcohol-water-based flux EO-Y-004, which is also obtainable as a granulate-based concentrate. The hybrid EO-Y-004 flux exhibits a solids content of 3.5% to 3.7% and has been developed for use in wave and selective soldering for a broad range of applications. The soldering properties have good rise-through and circuit-board wetting. The broad process window has great thermal stability. Practice has shown that with proper application, the washing of circuit boards soldered with this flux can be largely dispensed with. The circuit boards are visually clean. Its low alcohol content renders it frost resistant enabling it to be transported and stored quite well in winter. The flux is moreover obtainable as a concentrate and can be packaged more simply and compactly. Transport optimization enables the flux concentrates to be economically transported over great distances, since shippers impose lower costs for non-hazardous goods.
