Essential Info

The Steren 400-168 Copper Desoldering Braid also known as desoldering wick or solder wick, is finely braided copper wire coated with rosin flux. This spool contains five feet of .01 inch think copper braiding for solder removal.

How Desoldering Braid Works - Place the end of the braid over the soldered connections of a component being removed. The connections are heated with a soldering iron until the solder melts and is wicked into the braid by capillary action. The braid is removed while the solder is still molten. The used section is then cut off and discarded when cool. Short lengths of cut braid will prevent heat being carried away by the braid instead of heating the joint.
