    One of these chameleons was my former pet, the other was a fake model.  Interestingly, they are the same if you only ask certain questions about them.



    ·          Is it green?



    ·          Is it a lizard?



    ·          Does it have four legs?




    The difference becomes apparent when you start asking the right questions



    • Does it change color?


    • What does it eat?


    • Is it alive?





    You must also ask the proper questions regarding halogen-free ball attach fluxes and flip-chip fluxes.



    • How is it tested?


    • What is the ppm level of Br, Cl, F?


    • Does the material pass per j-std-709?





    Make sure your getting the “Real Green”.
