Hi All I received some advice 1) use Flux with Thinner 2) use Flux with Water. Which one is better for my wave sodlering? The type of Flux is watersoluble.

We'd guess thinner, but more importantly, what does the formulator of your flux say?

You should only need to mix in thinner if your formulation changes. You will need to check the specific gravity of your flux. You can do this by using a hydrometer. Contact your flux supplier for their advice.

Dear Dave

Thanks for your advice.I dun know why flux can't use alone w/o adding other solvents. is it neccessary? Now, our flux density is 0.88. By the way, we use Hi Grade Flux 1080.

use thinner and contact your supplier about it. the guy that advised you to use water is probably from your competitor. LOL
