The Chip Quik No-Clean Liquid Flux Pen is great for all rework, solder, de-solder, and reflow applications! In particular this one is from the rework-champs at Chip Quik.
Liquid flux helps solder to “cling” to metal by removing oxide buildup. It also helps spread out solder by reducing surface tension. Liquid flux is crucial for surface mount soldering and desoldering, but usually not necessary for through-hole components. With a pen, you can just ‘draw’ it onto the area you’re working. We also have a liquid tacky flux if you prefer using a syringe.
Flux is a cleaning fluid, so use care and ventilation when in use!
Flux Type: No-Clean Liquid Flux (for Leaded and Lead-Free applications)
Storage and Handling:
Store refrigerated or at room temperature 3-25C (37-77F). The liquid flux can be allowed to freeze. Freezing will not degrade this product. Allow 4 hours for liquid flux to reach an operating temperature of 20-25C (68-77F) before use.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
