The German flux manufacturer Emil Otto GmbH is further expanding its product range with the EO-Y-006 A and C fluxes. Both flux versions are available to customers with immediate effect and ensure further diversification of the product portfolio at Emil Otto.
“All versions of the EO-Y-006 range consist of 60% alcohol and 40% water. However, the EO-Y-006 A and C fluxes differ in solids content and acid number. The flux EO-Y-006 A has a solids content of 1.9 to 2.2%, while C has a higher solids content of 3.9 to 4.2%. So EO-Y-006, which was previously available on the market, now becomes EO-Y-006B, with an unchanged solids content of 3.0 to 3.2%. “, explains Markus Geßner, Marketing and Sales Manager of Emil Otto GmbH. With the new products, the range of hybrid fluxes is once again expanded and adapted to customer needs. “These fluxes achieve very good soldering results due to their alcohol-water-based formulation and the PCB is very clean after using the fluxes. All variants of the EO-Y-006 range are suitable for use on Organic Solderability Preservative (OPS) PCBs,” Geßner further explains. The fluxes were developed for use in wave and selective soldering. In addition, they can be used for hand and repair soldering as well as for dip soldering. The very good soldering properties are particularly evident in the penetration and wetting of the PCB.
The individual variants of EO-Y-006 allow the customer to select a flux that is tailored to his area of application. The A variant has a low solids content of around 2% and was specially developed for full-tunnel nitrogen applications. The flux guarantees very good soldering results under full nitrogen due to its wide process window and its high temperature stability. The standard version corresponds to the B variant, which has a solids content of around 3%. This version of the EO-Y-006 is also offered as a dosing pen or dosing bottle. The third version is the C variant, which was specially developed for power electronics where large component bodies have to be soldered at a high component density.
