How to use Shape I and examples

Having the very fine tip end, this shape is best for soldering micro components such as 0603, etc and for repairing high-density-mounting P.W.Bs. such as in cellular phones, etc. However, the heat capacity of Shape I is very small and the heat may not be transferred to workpiece sufficiently, which caused the insufficient solder (It's called Red Eye generally.).


Shape I has the special application of Heavy Duty Type.
