To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
All the other solder flux on Amazon says "made in China" which is the main reason to boycott it after what China have done to the world with it's lies and deceit. I looked & looked until I found this one. I bought instantly and am very pleased with it.
No good. It hardly deoxidizes. almost useless. And it is too hard a paste making it very hard to apply to the work area. It also leaves a black residue which is very annoying, defeat the purpose. I don't know why some people gave it a 5 star. I found this product working against me. I wouldn't recommend anyone buyinf it.
I like it. Only complaint is that it gets really hard in cold weather. No instructions on what to do in that case. I live in Montreal and my shop is my garage. It's cold. Works though so just taking a star cause I'm grumpy about how hard the stuff got.
I couldn’t believe how much it helped in directing solder into small holes and solder pads. With a good quality solder wire, you’ll have the impression you were born for this! (Slight exaggeration, but you get the point)
Easy to clean up with isopropyl alcohol.
The only downfall is that is somewhat messy to apply as opposed to a rosin pen.
This is a great Canadian supplier for a wide range of soldering products. Consistent "made in Canada" quality, competitive pricing and flawless speedy delivery. I'll gladly purchase any products SRA offers to satisfy all my future soldering supply requirements.
I bought this to replace the old stuff I had for years. I waffled between this, and the MG Chem. I should have gone MG. This stuff barely cleans the surfaces, and cooks off way too fast. It basically just does nothing, but leaves my PCB gross, and needing to be cleaned. It won't even allow solder to flow on my IC pis correctly.
I have a yellow puck that only smokes when used, horrible flux.
Its always nice to have some Rosin Flux on hand when doing soldering jobs as I find it can be handy for those times when the rosin in your solder is just not enough.
This stuff has a good consistency and there's enough here to last me for a long long time. The package is decent and although I would've preferred a screw top instead of the pop top it comes with, its put together well so I don't expect too many problems with it.
Gets the job done. Stronger smell than the old stuff I was using. Good amount for the price. It is too early to see how this paste is long term(some pastes even when cleaned eat board traces a bit), but so far so good.
