I know that OA is water soluable. But what exactly does the acronym "OA" stand for? "Organic something-or-other". I've checked the archive and can only find reference to oa, not what it actually stands for.

thanks, spanky

I will second the previous answer that it stands for Organic Acid. "Acid" being the key word as to why it must be thoroughly cleaned.

OA stands for Organic Activated. In the good old fo SMT processes, a lot of different fluxes are being considered. RA, RMA, OA, etc. If you look at the present no-clean paste, it is actually RMA.
