  • It is no-residue and no-clean.
  • It works in both mixed-technology and through-hole applications.
  • It addresses the lead-free transition question, as it can be used with both lead-free and SnPb solder alloys.


  • Wave solder flux WF-9942’s wide process window offers excellent solderability, superior hole fill, and reduced solder balling on all surface finishes. This formulation’s tremendous thermal stability accommodates the increased temperatures used in the lead-free wave soldering process.

    Indium Corporation product manager, Leo Devine, said, "WF-9942 is a great resource for people facing the lead-free soldering transition. They can now purchase one flux that satisfies their cumulative no-clean, mixed-technology, and lead-free/SnPb requirements. This truly compliments the complex requirements that the market faces in these times."
