Usage/Applications

Desoldering wire is used to remove solder from an elemental device or from patterns on a printed circuit board (PCB) from which surface-mounted devices such as BGA (ball grid array) have been removed.

 Trick to remove solder well with the desoldering wire


Wrong use of the desoldering wire may tear patterns from a PCB or damage discrete components. In order to prevent these problems, make sure to take the preventive measure below:

  1. Apply a bit of solder to the tip of solder iron.
  2. Apply a bit of solder to the tip of the desoldering wire. Cut the soldered tip of the wire at an angle of 45 degrees. Solder should remain attached.

Preliminary soldering improves heat conductance. 

Put the desoldering wire onto the soldering part.

Press the desoldering wire with the soldering iron on the wire

After melted with the heat of the soldering tip, the solder is sucked up into the desoldering wire

Be careful not to press the soldering tip down for too long. Otherwise, the pattern will come off.

Remove the desoldering wire and soldering iron at the same time.
