WF-9945: Truly Halogen-Free Wave Flux

Indium Corporation has just released a completely halogen-free wave solder flux that performs in a Pb-free process similar to its halogenated counterparts.

The reason that this is such a big deal is that Pb-free wave soldering has been a challenge to obtain good hole fill while not leaving behind harmful residues. The WF-9945 is the first flux of its kind to achieve that while also not containing any halogens.

As shown in the test results here, the WF-9945 is halogen-free using the oxygen bomb following by ion chromatography test method (EN14582).
