Rework and Touch-Up
Indium Corporation manufactures a variety of materials for PCB rework, repair, and touch up, including flux-cored wire, liquid rework fluxes, and TACFluxes®.
Flux Cored Wire
Indium Corporation has developed a range of flux-cored wire solutions to meet the needs of virtually every electronic assembly and rework operation from no-clean flux-cored wire for circuit board assembly to activated flux-cored wire for non-sensitive electronics and electrical applications.
No-clean fluxes include:
- CW-807 halogen free for high reliability assemblies
- CW-807M, which has a small addition of halogen activator for more difficult to solder assemblies
- CW-807H for high temperature alloys
- CW-501 is rosin (colophony) free and shows exceptional soldering on a wide range of assemblies
- CW-802 is recommended only when no halogen is a must and the process is well-controlled
Activated fluxes include:
- CW-201, a traditional RA type flux as defined by the legacy Mil-Spec QQ-S-571
- CW-207 formulated using a blend of heat stable clear rosins
- CW-209, which has twice the amount of halogen activator as CW-207
- CW-501, rosin (colophony) free and has exceptionally effective soldering on a wide range of assemblies
Liquid Rework Fluxes
Liquid rework fluxes are packaged in convenient pen dispensers, providing the optimal fluxing with no waste. Flux pens utilize a spring-loaded applicator tip to deliver a controlled amount of flux to the work surface. The user friendly pin-point application is deal for touch-up and light assembly work. Liquid fluxes include:
TACFluxes® have a variety of uses including rework and repair of various electronics assemblies and components, SMT component attach (including BGAs and flip-chips), BGA ball attach, preform soldering, and virtually any application where flux is required. Indium Corporation manufactures a complete line of TACFlux®, which include no-clean, water-wash, and RMA-based fluxes.
Some of the most common TACFluxes® include:

If you haven’t heard about Bi-containing (bismuth) solder alloys recently, that may change in the near future. Low-melting Bi-containing solders are now in increasing use and gaining popularity due to their lower melting temperatures—58Bi/42Sn is eutectic at 138°C and 57Bi/42Sn/1Ag melts 137-139°C (both are Pb-free alternatives). A low-temperature solder is advantageous...
In a six-part SMT assembly series, we discussed the advantages of using fine powder solder pastes to improve process yields for stencil printing, especially in areas where the area ratio is below 0.66. Because ~60% of solder defects typically occur at the...
SMTA International (SMTAI) will be held in Rosemont, Illinois, September 30 through October 1, 2014. I am very excited about the show as I am exhibiting for the first time as the a...
