About this product

Product overview

• Cleans, wets and tins soldering iron tips• Removes stubborn tin and iron residues that are resistant to resin based fluxes• 15g weight

A block of electronics-grade solder powder and chemicals compacted into the shape of a thick disc. It is packaged in a metal container, complete with lid and self adhesive pad on the underside so that it can be fixed to any convenient surface. A single wipe of the iron across the block at once cleans, wets and tins the tip.The composition will remove the stubborn tin/iron inter-metallic layer that forms on iron-plated tips and resists resin based fluxes. The Tip/Tinner Cleaner does all the work of sponges or wipes and acid-cored solder wire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential if doing a lot of soldering and you want to keep iron tip clean This tip cleaner comes in a small container, but lasts a long time, after a year there is still over half left and this gets a lot of use. Especially useful if working on small high density boards where a clean too is necessary to avoid 'blobs'

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the same product as advertised This product is advertised as 'contains lead'. Now the tin clearly states 'lead free'. When soldering you should not mix 60/40 solder with a lead free tinner. I hate 'lead free solder' hence this review. The website still says 'contains lead' in the questions section but the product is different.

Is the electronics-grade solder powder, that is in the product, unleaded.  I've heard it's not good practice when soldering to use leaded and unleaded solder on the same soldering iron bit.

Asked by: Chris
The item is electronics-grade solder powder the data sheet says the item contains lead.

Could this be used instead of flux?
Asked by: Cameron Edwards
No sorry this product does not support that.
