Removing Loctite glue from board / bga | 17 August, 2006

Hi all, I need to find a solution for a problem I have. I need to replace BGAs which have been glued to a laptop board with superglue (Loctite). How can it be done without removing the pads when trying to remove the foreign glue? thanks in advance

If you really have Loctite Super Glue it is a cyanoacrylate and can be removed with acetone. If you have a Loctite aneorbic glue that has not hardened yet, acetone will remove it. If an anerobic has hardened I know of nothing that will remove it. Also I work in a different area than circuit boards and I can not tell you if acetone will damage your board or other hardware.

We too doubt that you have super glue on your BGA. If you want advice on removing super glue, look here: * http://www.supergluecorp.com/removingsuperglue.html

HAHAHAHA !

Did you read the section about getting super glue off lips ? How could you accidentally super glue your lips together?

Funny stuff man.....

Se�or Tech: You mean you never stayed at a friends house and woke-up the next morning to find that they shaved your eyebrows or superglued your lips? Now, that's funny. [Well, at the time it's not always funny, but the pix are later.] Don't let them talk you into using soap to loosen-up superglued lips. It work horrors on the digestive track.
