The Organic Acid (OA) fluxes are available in a variety of formulations, including water-soluble and No-Clean fluxes; halide and non-halide fluxes; alcohol and VOC-Free (water-based) products. OA flux was first introduced in the 1940s. Based upon a formulation conceived at the Battelle Memorial Institute, this flux contained no rosin, no inorganic activators, and no solvents. It was a revolutionary chemistry that was capable of soldering copper, brass, and nickel alloys, but contained only one-third the solids content of the conventional rosin fluxes. Cleaning was simplified to an aqueous wash using an OA flux. The cleanability and activity of this flux, relative to Rosin and Inorganic fluxes, made it popular for electronics and electrical soldering applications where more activity was required than found in rosin fluxes, but did not have the corrosive and cleaning problems inherent in acid fluxes. Today, manufactures worldwide are switching to No-Clean fluxes, and VOC-Free, and water soluble fluxes in an effort to promote a safer workplace and global environment. These fluxes comprise the majority of liquid fluxes sold for electronics assembly applications in wave soldering, component tinning, and wire/cable tinning.
