Re: OT Chip Quik - which one to choose

Shirley Dulcey KE1L

The OP is in Israel; I don't know what availability of Amazon delivery is
there. ChipQuik products are available a number of ways: Amazon, major
electronics distributors, and ChipQuik's own website.

Another product of theirs that I like is the room temperature stable solder
paste, which is available in three alloys: 63/37, SAC305, and low
temperature bismuth.

What you're looking for is ChipQuik alloy. If you've never used it, the
simplest way to start is to buy one of the small kits for desoldering;
include a small spool of desoldering wire and some flux. There are
with and without lead.

I use ChipQuik SMDLTLFP.

Applies best when the chip is slightly warm, otherwise the paste will
ball up.

I've never used this special low-temp solder to remove SMD IC's.

I 'm game to try it.

Here is Mouser's inventory.

Exactly which one is the correct low-temp solder?
