***The flux comes with/in a 2oz. bottle with a 20 gauge (0.025"I.D./0.036"O.D.) dispensing needle. ***

Kester 186, under MIL-F-14256, was QPL
approved as Type RMA. Although the fluxing ability
approaches that of Type RA flux, the flux residue
after soldering is non-corrosive and non-conductive.
Kester 186 rosin flux has been developed for
use in critical applications where difficult
assemblies are to be soldered, but process
requirements stipulate use of Type RMA flux. This
flux possess high thermal stability for soldering
multi-layer assemblies which require a high
preheat temperature. Exposure to high preheat
temperatures does not degrade solubility of the
residue in normal cleaning solvents. There is no
surface insulation resistance degradation caused
by the flux residue. The use of a minimum of ionic
activating agents and the inactive nature of the
residue permits leaving the residue on circuit
board assemblies for many applications. The flux
residue is also moisture and fungus resistant.
Note: This is a repackaged product. To the best of our knowledge, Kester only offers its fluxes in one gallon or greater quantities, or in pen form which doesn't work particularly well for surface mount components.
Do to the Hazardous Material nature of Isopropanol based flux, this product must ship ORM-D surface mail only. This product can not be shipped outside the United States of America.
