Desoldering / Rework/Desoldering Wire


  • Economical and easy-to-use desoldering wire
  • Handy for the removal of solder after dismounting surface-mounted components including BGAs

Available in:

  • Japan
  • North America
  • Europe
  • Oceania
  • Asia
  • Other Countries



Faster thermal transmission for superior performance at lower temperature and with lower wattage soldering irons.

Three types

  • Unflux type : Untreated copper braid
                        spooled on an ESD safe bobbin
  • No clean type : Halogen-free low-residue flux coated copper braid
                           spooled on an ESD safe bobbin
  • Regular type : Rosin flux treated copper braid

Removal for bridging



Desoldering wire is used to remove solder from an elemental device or from patterns on a printed circuit board (PCB) from which surface-mounted devices such as BGA (ball grid array) have been removed.

absmiddleTrick to remove solder well with the desoldering wire

Wrong use of the desoldering wire may tear patterns from a PCB or damage discrete components. In order to prevent these problems, make sure to take the preventive measure below:
Apply a bit of solder to the tip of soldering iron.
Apply a bit of solder to the tip of the desoldering wire. Cut the soldered tip of the wire at an angle of 45 degrees. Solder should remain attached.

  1. Apply flux to where you want to desolder.
  2. Place the desoldering wire on where you want to desolder, and put a soldering iron on top to melt a solder joint.
  3. Once the desoldering wire sucks away molten solder, take the wire and iron off the board at the same time.
