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 toolor 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.
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
Refrigerated >24 months, unrefrigerated >24 months

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter

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.
