    Customer review of our SRA Fast Chip Kit for SMD Removal

    A customer has reviewed our SRA Fast Chip Kit for SMD Removal - 2cc Flux 820mm Alloy - Lead-Free.

    See what he had to say below,


    "Following your recommendation to try your SRA Fast Chip Kit I thought I would let you know how I got on with it, in a word 'BRILLIANT'!! 

    Definitely going to buy more!  I needed to remove a 38pin ESP 32 module which is basically a PCB with castellated sides. There are other components under its metal can, and excessive heat will wreck the module. The way the stuff works is it mix's with the existing solder to form a mixture that will stay liquid for some time ( 20 + secs). Although the solder melts at 58 deg you need a much hotter iron to enable it to stay liquid for some time, I used around 300 deg as the pads are quite big. You would need to turn that down for really fine pitch chips. You need to be VERY generous with the flux, and the solder getting it to bridge to its

    Customer Question: Which flux is best for me?

    Read our PCB engineers reply to a customer's query below.

    Q: Looking to buy some flux from your company, if you could advise which flux is best for me. I am currently repairing pcb electronics, vehicle electrical parts like instrument clusters. The flux I currently use works well but if you revisit the pub after 1 or 2 months there's green residue over the area flux was used. It's eating away at the small resistors and is self damaging over time. Can you advise why this is happening and a suitable product from your shop that guarantees safe working with pcb electronics without the flux turning into green corrosive residue Iver to.e

    A: Fluxes by their nature can be chemically aggressive which helps to remove oxidisation from metals which allows the solder to “Wet” the surface. It may be that the current flux being used is of the type which is recommended to be removed by chemically washing or ultrasonic cleaning. This is fine to use to achieve a good solder joint but

    Allendale Pub Style Quiz

    Another fabulous round of our Allendale Pub Style quiz!

    Thank you to Jo for organising another fun quiz for all our team.

    Made up of 8 rounds, we had some competition on the Girl Power and It’s Raining Men rounds, and some very confused faces at the Intros of songs in the Music round. We also had an Animal, Food & Drink, General Knowledge, Logos and Mystery round, giving everyone their chance to shine!

    It was lovely to see some old faces and get all of our colleagues together for a night of laughs and rivalry – even if it was through our screens.

    Ryan managed to score the most points this week; the rest of us better start practising as he’s the one to beat for our next Quiz!
