Indium Corporation announces that it is now offering CW-305, a uniquely formulated flux-cored wire that offers superior ease of cleaning in which the post-soldering residue can be removed by using only a warm water-wash.
Indium Corporation’s halogen-free CW-305 cleans so well that residue removal can be delayed for up to 48 hours without affecting ionic cleanliness or visual circuit board appearance. CW-305 is beneficial for electrical hand soldering applications where high flux strength and the ability to clean with water are required, such as touch-up and rework applications for medical, aerospace, and automotive industries. CW-305 is also capable of soldering to heavily tarnished surfaces.
CW-305 is compatible with Indium Corporation’s suite of proven halogen-free, water-wash solder paste and wave fluxes as well as its halogen-containing water-wash fluxes. It is designed for both manual and automated touch-up and component addition.

SMTA International is just around the corner, and we are excited to be meeting fully in person and onsite. The conference and expo runs from Monday, Oct. 31 through Thursday, Nov. 3, returning to the Minneapolis Convention Center. Once again, we will co-locate with Medical Design & Manufacturing Minneapolis 2022 (MD&M). As the world continues to adjust to the new normal following nearly years of the pandemic, an in-person industry conference and exhibition is more valuable than ever.
