Description

This flux has been specially developed for solar technology, in particular for soldering solar modules, tabber and stringer material
as well as connecting cells. EO-S-012 is a No Clean-Flux, halogen-free formulated and optimized for use in wave, selective and manual soldering processes. It is based on organic, rosin-free, activating additives in a combination specially tuned to the thermal requirements of the wave
soldering process with lead and lead-free solders. EO-S-012 contains small amounts of special alcoholic additives for stabilization and improved drying times compared to conventional water-based fluxes. The Flux was mainly developed for low-melting processes (Bi-solders). EO-S-012 leaves no sticky residue. The activators are specially designed for the higher temperatures that are required in the manufacture of solar modules without affecting their effectiveness. The application can be carried out by any usual application method (except foams). EO-S-012 is totally free from corrosion action

Instructions for use:
Sprayfluxing: If possible, try at first a quantity of 30 – 50 ml/min and observe the distribution of the flux. After that, correct the quantity. Air pressure: 18 – 20 l/min.
Preheating: Entering the solder wave, the temperature on the topside of the pasteboards should be 80 – 110 °C, dependent on type of boards, layout etc. In case of using lead-free solders, preheating temperatures of 100 – 125 °C on the topsides are possible.

Safety instructions: Please refer to the current MSDS
This flux is very versatile and OPS-compatible. There are good results for manual, wave and selective soldering as well as for cable assembly / wire tinning. The general rule of applying fluxes applied in principle as low as possible also applies to this product.
