Nickel Additive
FCT Assembly’s Dross X was formulated for tin/lead solder pots. It is not used in lead free applications.

  • Easy to apply
  • Low fuming
  • No oily residues
  • Non-corrosive
  • Non-flammable
  • Saves money
FCT Assembly has developed AO1000 Anti-Oxidant Solder Additive to aid in reducing the solder dross buildup in both static and wave soldering pots containing SN100C. Dross buildup can seriously affect the wetting abilities of the solder and can cling to component leads when they are removed from the bath. Use of AO1000 Solder Additive also will reduce the loss due to dross formation, which can reduce solder usage by as much as 50%. AO1000 is specifically a germanium additive for SN100C solder. It is not usable for other alloys.

  • Lead free
  • Less dross formation
  • Better wetting
  • Smooth, bright fillets
  • Lower solder use
  • Safer than chemical treatments
  • Less mess than oil covers
Ni10 nickel additive is intended to increase the nickel content of SN100C/SN100CL lead-free solders. Ni10 is specifically a nickel additive for SN100C solder. It is not usable for other alloys.

  • Contains nominal nickel concentration of 10% by weight
  • Lead free
