About this product


  • Flux-impregnated, copper braid that speedily removes unwanted solder from a joint
  • Uses a 'No-Clean' flux
  • Faster de-soldering

Product overview

• Flux-impregnated, copper braid that speedily removes unwanted solder from a joint• Uses a 'No-Clean' flux• Faster de-soldering • Excellent thermal conductivity

How to use:Place the cold braid end on the solder that is to be removed. Place the hot soldering iron tip on top of the braid. Remove the braid and the hot iron at the same time. Cut off the end that contains the unwanted solder. The temperature of the soldering iron bit must be sufficient to liquefy the solder efficiently. The braid comes in 1.5m length and width of 2mm.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Utterly useless Won't 'mop' It's reluctant even with iron set at 450 degrees F. Not impregnated with enough flux? Overpriced and worth almost nil. (Professional engineer 48yrs)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Utterly useless, and overpriced. I do not know how this could make it to your shelves, it does not wick solder at all even directly from the tip when fully molten at any temperature. Very annoying as i now cant finish the job i am working on today because of your poor product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid bought to desolder a power jack on a PCB - it was useless, waste of money. Alternatives are recommended via Google, should have done more homework before trusting an unbranded Maplin product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected Sometimes de-soldering guns can be a bit vicious. This is well fluxed and lifts 99.9% of the solder without doing damage. Reaches parts other methods find difficult
