Is this a good soldering flux?

I know pyro sells some, but I ordered this before I realized it. Anyone have any experience, knowledge or opinion? Thx

P.S. I'm using 60/40 solder FWIW, trying to go for low temp for less stress on components.

Thats NOT Flux.:p Thats solder paste with flux mixed in.

Try canceling it and order from Jeff. You really don't know what your missing.

His stuff is the best.!!!!!!

I liked his Old Solder flux first until i got his new one in, and let me tell you that stuff right there makes the Best Joints, Tins Wire and makes solder stick to pad's like no other flux i have tried hands down.!

I wont use anything else. Plus Ive tried some of the ones on the bay and the ones i did try all smell funny and leave a burn residue on the boards sometimes. Not to mention it so dang hard to whip off. Almost becomes sticky after.

Yeah FP's flux is great... I use it when my solder joints
are a bit "dry".

Thanks, I ended up ordering 3cc each of pyros flux and some wire from him too. I have LOTS of wire now. I ordered from a board competitor as well, so I'll evaluate the two wires side by side.

I wish someone had a 26AWG COPPER fine stranded wire with silicone insulation, but if it exists, I couldn't find it!

Couldn't decide between creating a new thread or bumping this but a quick question:

Are these pen type fluxes really Kester 186 flux?

Thanks!

Thread's been dead for almost 1-1/2 years...:eek:

Maybe ask the seller.. How would you want us
to test for the exact type chemical composition
of the flux....:thinking:

Yeah, sorry about that.

I bet the seller would claim it's 100% genuine, as any other seller would.

Just wondering if anyone else had experiences with these pen type fluxes. :)
