No-Clean Desoldering Braid

Packaging Order minimum case quantity only. Extra shipping fees may apply.
Techspray No­Clean desoldering braid (wick) does not leave behind ionic flux residues that can collect and form branches called “dendrites”. Other fluxes, if not cleaned properly, can cause dendrites that grow over time and eventually cause short circuits between traces or leads. Latent failures lead to costly returns and lower the quality perception of your products.

Desoldering braid or desoldering wick is a pre-fluxed copper braid that is used to remove solder, which allows components to be replaced and excess solder (e.g. bridging) to be removed. The soldering iron is applied to the wick as it sits on the solder joint, and when both are brought up to the solder's melting point, the flux is activated and, through capillary action from the braided design, solder is drawn up the wick. Techspray wick has been a mainstay at PCB rework, repair and prototyping stations for over 30-years.
Available in anti-static spools (marked with "AS") to prevent static build-up from damaging sensitive components.

Desoldering How-To Guide
Desoldering wick (also known as solder wick, wick, or desoldering braid) is a common method of removing unwanted solder using flux and braided copper wire.  It is commonly used to aid in removing faulty components, to correct solder bridging, or for any other reason that solder needs to be...

Guide to Electronic Soldering
What is soldering? Soldering is the joining of two metal surfaces mechanically and electrically, with the use of metal called solder (pronounced “sodder”). Solder secures the connection so it doesn’t break loose from vibration, other mechanical forces and provides electrical conti...
