Alcohol and water-based fluxes differ in solids content

EMIL OTTO EO-Y-006 A and C fluxes consist of 60% alcohol and 40% water, however, they differ in solids content and acid number. EO-Y-006 A has a solids content of 1.9 to 2.2%, while C has a higher solids content of 3.9 to 4.2%. So EO-Y-006, which was previously available on the market, now becomes EO-Y-006B, with an unchanged solids content of 3.0 to 3.2%. The range of hybrid fluxes deliver improved soldering results due to their alcohol-water-based formulation and the pcb is very clean after using the fluxes. All variants of the EO-Y-006 range are suitable for use on Organic Solderability Preservative (OPS) pcb. Fluxes were developed for use in wave and selective soldering. In addition, they can be used for hand and repair soldering as well as for dip soldering.
