Halogen Free No Clean Core Wire
Kester 296 No-Clean Flux for Cored Solder Wire is halogen-free and halide-free with no intentional addition of bromine and chlorine, conforming to the strictest requirements of IEC 61249-2-21, JPCA-ES-01 and IPC-410B specifications. With its unique flux chemistry system, 296 provides superior workability performance for both manual and automated soldering in the electronics industry, as compared to conventional halogen/halide-based systems. 296 provides good break-off and prevents occurrence of bridges and protrusions, even in narrow-pitch automated drag soldering. The use of 296 results in a clear post-soldering residue without need for cleaning. The unique flux system of 296 was also designed to reduce spattering common to most core fluxes. 296 is classified as type ROL0 flux under J-STD-004B specifications.
