The Fast Chip SMD Removal Kit is a quick and inexpensive way to remove SMD components from a PCB without a hot air station using only your soldering iron.
Removes QFP's, PLCC's, SOIC's, and chip components under 300 degrees Fahrenheit
Enough material to remove 8-10 SMD'S
The Kit Contains: 2.7 ft. Fast Chip Removal Alloy - 1 2cc tube of SRA TF5000 No Clean Rework Paste Flux and complete Instructions for SMD Removal and Cleanup
The heart of the kit is a length of Fast Chip low temperature Removal alloy. This alloy is like a solder that melts at temperatures well below that of normal solder (100°C and 212°F) and stays liquid long enough to melt the existing solder, allowing you time to carefully remove the component.
Simply apply a liberal amount of the included flux to the pins of the chip that you want to remove, then use a soldering iron with a flat-edge tip to heat the pins while applying the low temperature alloy. The alloy will remain liquid for a few seconds while you coat all of the connections, once you've coated the pins you should be able to lift the chip free using tweezers or a hemostat. Clean the pads thoroughly and apply fresh solder and you're ready to solder a new part in place.
