This is the last of our Hakko week! We hope that we were able to bring you some valuable information about Hakko and the products they offer.

So, last but not least is the Hakko FT-700 Tip Polisher, a maintenance kit to renew oxidized soldering iron tips. Great for Lead-Free solder!

When hand soldering with lead-free alloys, higher tip temperatures and highly active fluxes causes oxidation and corrosion, which greatly decreases the life of your soldering tip. The Hakko FT-700 tip polisher helps increase the life of your tip by keeping it clean and free from oxidation easily and quickly.

  • FAST and EASY way to keep your soldering iron tips clean adn free from oxidation
  • Two spinning polishing brushes (brushes will not damage tip plating)
  • Lead-free chemical paste for immediate tip tinning

Immediately after soldering:

  1. Insert the tip between the two spinning polishing brushes to clean the tip and remove the oxide
  2. Dip the tip into the FS-100 lead-free chemical paste to re-tin the tip, the fine powder Sn is melted immediately

After Applying the Hakko FS-100 to the tip:

  1. Insert the tip between the spinning brushes of the FT-700 to remove melted chemical paste
  2. Tin the tip with the solder you are currently using before placing the iron in the holder (This prevents the flux residue of the FS-100 from the PWB)

This process will restore new life to your soldering iron tips. Incorporate the procedure above your soldering routine and you

will quickly realize the benefits of mainting a clean, oxidation-free tip, especially when working with lead-free alloys.

Note: The FS-100 chemical paste is included with the FT-700 tip polisher.
