Re: Reactivating solder cream
A lot of people are making stupid comments without even thinking
A half minute search on Google "Solder Paste MSDS"
gave me the answer:
"Diethylene Glycol Dibutyl Ether" is the solvant used in the RMA solder paste RMA0933.
So the answer from Leon to use IPA (IsoPropyl Alchool) is making a lot of sense and is not dangerous as claimed by some.
Just my two cents after using solder paste in my job for the past thirty five years.
