ITASCA, IL — April 27, 2016

Contact: Michelle O’Brien, Marketing & Communications Specialist

Kester is proud to announce the launch of NF372-TB Flux-Pen® and RF550 Rework Flux. These products were formulated to compliment Kester’s high-reliability, no-clean product line.

NF372-TB Flux-Pen® is a zero-halogen, no-clean, low solids flux available as a Flux-Pen® for rework of conventional and surface mount circuit board assemblies. Kester NF372-TB flux passes IPC SIR testing in a raw or unheated state, ensuring Kester NF372-TB Flux-Pen®s can be safely used in rework applications, specifically those with high reliability requirements. NF372-TB Flux-Pen® residues are minimal, clear and non-tacky for improved cosmetics. NF372-TB Flux-Pen® is classified as ROL0 flux under IPC J-STD-004B.

RF550 Rework Flux is a high-reliability, zero-halogen, no-clean rework flux designed for electronic component rework and repair applications. RF550 has a gel-like consistency and is packaged in syringes for easy dispensing. RF550 can be precisely dispensed onto specific areas that require flux. After being dispensed, RF550 stays in place until soldering occurs. RF550 has excellent performance in applications requiring high reliability. RF550 is the ideal choice for QFP or BGA semi-auto­mated rework applications, and is well suited for use with through-hole repair.
