Desoldering Braid (Wick)

Desoldering Braid (Wick)

Soder-Wick® Desoldering Braid
Soder-Wick, the world's leading brand of desoldering braid, is the fastest, cleanest and safest braid in the industry. It significantly reduces rework/repair time and minimizes the risk of heat damage to the board. Its geometrically precise weave design allows for maximum capillary action and solder capacity. Soder-Wick Desoldering Braid optimizes heat transfer through the braid and into the solder joint, resulting in faster wicking action than any other competitive brand. Minimal flux residue on the board speeds up the cleaning process, or eliminates it entirely.

Soder-Wick Desoldering solder wick Braid is available in the most comprehensive variety of widths, lengths and flux types. Application-specific sizes allow for precision solder removal in a flash. Sealed in Performance Pak™ Barrier Packaging and VacuPak™ Vacuum Sealed Packaging, Soder Wick Desoldering Braid is completely protected from the harmful effects of the environment. The VacuPak™ vacuum-sealed can guarantees the braid to be as fast and fresh as the day it was made. The can serves as a protective storage container once the pack has been opened and is also easily stacked on the shelf. Its superior packaging provides predictable quality and performance, time and time again.

Chem-Wik® Desoldering Braid
As the standard desoldering braid for service and repair, Chem-Wik® Desoldering Braid ensures fast and safe desoldering. The ultra-pure, oxygen free copper braid quickly and completely removes solder from circuit boards and components. Its fast wicking action protects components from harmful heat damage. PermaPak™ Barrier Packaging ensures ultimate braid freshness and speed by sealing out harmful effects of the environment and protecting against oxidation.

Chem-Wik Desoldering Braid Meets or exceeds the greatest range of performance standards:

  • MIL-F-14256F Type R
