DEOX – Dross Reducing Powder

DEOX – Dross Reducing Powder

AIM Deox Dross Reducing Powder is a white, inorganic powder which removes oxides from the solder surface, cleaning it to allow regeneration of usable metal and decreasing the amount of dross for disposal. It extends the use of solder by encapsulating metal oxides and is recommended for tin/lead and lead free solder pot temperatures od 235°C through to 265°C.

Dross Reducing Powder reduces dross in solder pots and can be used in wave soldering and still solder baths. It contains no fatty acids or mineral oils, and no chlorides, ensuring no interference with board or component cleanliness.

* Move the dross to one area of the solder pot
* Apply a layer approximatley 3mm thick on top of the dross
* Introduce Dross Reducing Powder into the dross, mixing thoroughly until the solder is separated from the metal oxides
* Remove the oxides and other non-metallic residues from the solder pot
