PCB flux cleaning
I have seen alot of videos where Alex clean the PCB after the soldering with some kind of paper, using the brush.
Anyone know what "paper" kind is that? Would really appreciate to know, so i can get my customers a better clean job.
They are lint free wipes. Its very effective in absorbing the flux residue from the board when combined with IPA.
As Jinu, said those are lint free wipes. Commonly known as Kim or Chem wipes for two of the major brands. Ideally you want to put the wipe down first (directly over the area you want to clean), dip your natural bristle brush in tech grade IPA from an ESD safe container, and then clean the board/module through the wipe. As the IPA evaporates the capillary action of the wipe will draw all the contaminates up into it. FOD or board contamination isn't so much of a functional concern outside of the MILSPEC and Aerospace communities (so long as it's not shorting anything out) but professional appearance is a testament to quality workmanship!
Have a good one,
