SHENMAO America, Inc. is pleased to offer its halogen-free SM-862 Liquid Flux that can replace the widely sold halogenated SM-816. The flux features low solid content and smooth flux residue, making it suitable for automatic wave soldering and manual dipping processes.
SM-862 is a rosin-containing flux designed to leave less residue and minimum bridges. The halogen-free ROL0 (J-STD-004B), tack-free, no-clean flux is designed for use in a variety of automated and selective soldering applications. It shows good hole-fill ability and minimum bridges when soldering boards with high density components.
SM-862 is ideal for wave soldering, selective soldering and dipping. Applicable products include mother boards, power boards, server boards, dipping components and more. The flux provides excellent solderability and flux residue after soldering with high voltage endurance.
SHENMAO has successfully been approved by many international well-known electronic manufacturers. The company strives to offer the best quality without compromising cost and time-to-market while providing maximum value to all customers.
