Rework

Rework

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

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:

  • Core 230-RC is low-spattering, fast wetting for high reliability assemblies
  • 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-802 is recommended only when no halogen is a must and the process is well-controlled

See the product data sheet for more details.

Activated fluxes include:

  • CW-219, which has twice the amount of halogen activator as CW-207
  • 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

See the product data sheet for more details.

Liquid Rework Fluxes

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:

  • FP-300, a water-soluble flux that is compatible with both SnPb and Pb-free assemblies
  • FP-500, a halogen-free flux that is compatible with both SnPb and Pb-free assemblies
  • NC-771, a halogen-free, low-residue, all-purpose flux that passes the SIR test in the un-reflowed state
TACFluxes®

TACFluxes®

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:
