VOC-free fluxes use water as the dominant solvent. In addition to limiting the amount of volatile organic compounds (VOC) into the atmosphere, sometimes associated with global warming, VOC-free fluxes are also non-flammable. The disadvantage of VOC-free/water-based fluxes is that they require more pre-heat to drive off the water than similar alcohol-based fluxes. In addition, assemblers must be careful to ensure that the top side of the circuit board is dry, otherwise it could lead to reliability issues in the form of electromigration.

When you focus on trying to quantify the level of contaminating material that remains after the cleaning process, you leave the more important question unanswered. What is that question?
In this installment of Tech Seconds, Phil summarizes the two primary criteria for selecting a wave flux.
You shouldn’t base your solder flux selection on just one data point.
