Cobar wave soldering flux 396-DRM

VOC-free flux showing extremely powerful soldering performance. This flux is mainly developed for utilization in consumer and industrial applications where the safety of the residue demands are less important than in high-tech applications. This flux can be used without nitrogen and offers all the advantages of a full water-based flux.

IPC J-STD-004 classification ORM0
