SHENMAO America, Inc. is pleased to announce the availability of its halogen-free SM-862 Liquid Flux, designed to replace the widely used halogenated SM-816. The SM-862 Flux offers a range of benefits, including low solid content and smooth residue, making it an excellent choice for automatic wave soldering and manual dipping processes.

SM-862 is a rosin-containing flux specifically formulated to leave minimal residue and reduce the occurrence of bridges during soldering. This halogen-free ROL0 (J-STD-004B) flux is tack-free and no-clean, suitable for various automated and selective soldering applications. It exhibits exceptional hole-fill ability and effectively prevents bridges when soldering high-density components on circuit boards.

The versatility of SM-862 makes it ideal for applications such as wave soldering, selective soldering and dipping. It is well-suited for use in industrial PC (IPC), motherboards, power boards, server boards, and other components requiring dipping. The flux delivers excellent solderability and leaves behind a flux residue that exhibits high voltage endurance.
