Suppliers have improved the utility and quality of OSP [organic solderability preservative] solderable surface protection over the years. Be cautious reading too much into older SMTnet [and web in general] conversations about handling OSP.

When properly applied, you should be able to wait a day or two between heat cycles, providing that OSP surface is not damaged. Find out ...

* Was it properly applied? [Your supplier should be happy to help understanding this question.]

* Are you doing something to affect the coating?
