No Clean Flux

AIM’s no clean flux is designed to leave minimal, electrochemically safe post-process residues. AIM’s no clean flux provides fast wetting and increased PTH barrel fill while reducing common soldering defects including bridging and solder balls. AIM’s no clean flux activation system has a wide process window that can withstand high process temperatures.
