Abstract

CFC (Chlorofluorocarbon) solvents must be eliminated to prevent damage to the earth's ozone layer. Elimination of all solder fluxes from the soldering process eliminates the need to clean a soldered printed circuit board (PCB) with CFC solvents to prevent the possibility of leaving ionic contamination on the PCB. Thus eliminating the need for solder flux will reduce usage of CFC solvents.
