A maintenance kit to renew oxidized soldering iron tips!
Great for Lead-Free solder!
When hand soldering with Lead-Free alloys, higher tip temperatures and highly-active fluxes causes oxidation and corrosion, which greatly decreases the life of your soldering iron tip. The Hakko FT-700 tip polisher helps increase the life of your tip by keeping it clean and free from oxidation easily and quickly.
FAST and EASY way to keep your soldering iron tips clean and free from oxidation
Two spinning polishing brushes (brushes will not damage tip plating)
Lead-free chemical paste for immediate tip tinning
Immediately after soldering:
(1) insert the tip between the two spinning polishing brushes to clean the tip and remove the oxide, then
(2) dip the tip into the FS-100 lead-free chemical paste to re-tin the tip The fine powder Sn is melted immediately.
After applying the Hakko FS-100 to the tip:
(3) insert the tip between the spinning brushes of the FT-700 to remove the melted chemical paste, then
(4) tin the tip with the solder you are currently using before placing the iron in the holder. [This prevents the flux residue of the FS-100 from the PWB.]
This process will restore new life to your soldering iron tips. Incorporate the procedure above into your soldering routine and you will quickly realize the benefits of maintaining a clean, oxidation-free tip, especially when working with Lead-Free alloys.
The FS-100 chemical paste is included with the FT-700 tip polisher.
