Chip Quik SMD Removal Kit – SMD1

Removing SMD parts more complex than a resistor or SOT-23 can be a real bear. You want to get the part off without damaging traces, and if possible, without damaging the part either. You could haul out your hot air tool or you could go in surgically with this handy SMD Removal Kit from Chipquik SMD removal is made easy! It uses a special metal alloy that bonds to your solder but stays liquid for a long time so can melt it over the existing pads and then remove with tweezers. This version has a leaded alloy, best for use with lead-based solder.

In just four steps you're rocking and rolling:

  1. Apply flux [we used the Chipquick Tack Flux 10cc Syringe] to all leads of SMD
  2. Solder alloy uniformly on all pins of SMD
  3. Lift SMD or slide SMD from board
  4. Clean site with swab dipped in flux, solder wick, alcohol pad.
  5. **TA-DA**

Kit Includes:

  • 2.5 feet of Removal Alloy
  • 1x tube of No-Clean Paste Flux
  • 5x Alcohol wipes
  • Instruction sheet

Chip Quik Tack Flux 10cc Syringe with Plunger and Tip – SMD291

The Chipquik Tack Flux 10cc Syringe is ideal for all rework, solder, de-solder, and reflow applications!

The tack flux is non-corosive, non-conductive, no-clean and it won't run all over your PCB when applied. In our GIF demo we used the syringe to apply the tack flux on an Adafruit Metro and then used a Chipquik SMD Removal Kit for the rest!

  • Flux Type: Synthetic No-Clean (for Leaded and Lead-Free applications)
  • Flux Classification: REL0
  • Packaging: 10cc/10g Syringe
  • Shelf Life
    Refrigerated >24 months, unrefrigerated >24 months
  • Stencil Life
    >8 hours @ 20-50% RH 22-28C (72-82F)
    >4 hours @ 50-70% RH 22-28C (72-82F)
  • Stencil Cleaning
    Automated stencil cleaning systems for both stencil and misprinted boards. Manual cleaning using isopropyl alcohol (IPA).
  • Storage and Handling
    Store refrigerated or at room temperature 3-25C (37-77F). Do not freeze. Allow 4 hours for flux to reach an operating temperature of 20-25C (68-77F) before use.

  1. This product is simply *AMAZING*!!!

    It really works as easy as the images above show. The chipquik solder mixes with the existing solder and lowers it’s melting point maybe below 200F… and holds the heat so it stays molten as you run your iron around it. I have replaced 144 pin TQFP chips with no problem using it.
