What is the best desoldering braid?
Choosing the right Desoldering Braid
- Rosin – Rosin fluxed braid has the fastest wicking action, but does leave behind residues that need to be throughly cleaned.
- No clean – No clean fluxed braid is ideal when cleaning isn’t practical or possible.
How do you Desolder with flux?
Flux’s job is to clean copper by removing impurities so that solder can properly wet (think “adhere”). When desoldering, you should apply flux to whatever the solder is supposed to wet to. If you are using a copper desoldering braid, then apply a bit of flux to it.
What is desoldering braid used for?
Desoldering braid or desoldering wick is a pre-fluxed copper braid that is used to remove solder, which allows components to be replaced and excess solder (e.g. bridging) to be removed.
How do you remove solder without heat?
How to Remove Solder Without a Soldering Iron
- Heat one of the flat head screwdrivers with the propane torch.
- Apply the red hot screwdriver to the solder, being careful not to touch the surrounding circuitry if you are removing the solder from a piece of electronic equipment.
- Touch the cold flat head screwdriver to the liquid solder, and quickly remove it.
Can you solder without flux?
Bear in mind though, most common solder wire is rosin-core, it has one or more cores of flux inside of it. The kind of solder plumbers use has no flux because they apply the flux externally. So you could solder with that solder. At low heat the solder might not melt fast enough, and a cold solder joint may result.

How do I Desolder SMD?
- Step 1: Preparing the PCB. Check to be sure the pad size of the PCB lines up with the pins on the SMD.
- Step 2: Use Tweezers to Position the Component.
- Step 3: Tack Down One Corner.
- Step 4: Flux.
- Step 5: Solder.
- Step 6: Heat Up Desoldering Wick to Fix Tack.
- Step 7: Solder.
- Step 8: Fix Any Remaining Solder Bridges.
What is no clean solder wick?
The substance left behind is flux, which cleans the metal pads on the board when heated in order that the solder has a clean surface to bond to and you get the best possible quality joint. The “no-clean” aspect means that leaving this in place will not damage the board.
What is solder wick?
Desoldering braid, also known as desoldering wick or solder wick, is finely braided 18 to 42 AWG copper wire coated with rosin flux, usually supplied on a roll. The connections are heated with a soldering iron until the solder melts and is wicked into the braid by capillary action.
