[SI-LIST] Re: Flux residue on coax cable

That was my response also "That it is best to remove it"  although it may
not be used for a long period of time I still feel that it may still cause
intermittent problems.

** Plus it's too sticky !! :-)

Organic flux is very corrosive over time. The military resisted it for years
because of failures cropping up "three years later". There are numerous
tales of network gear not working on damp days.

If it bridges the insulation and becomes conductive due to interacting with
copper it will lower the impedance in an unpredictable way. That's what
happens on TQFP pins (they start leaking at each other).

Hi impedance op amp circuits have problems; things like pH probes get very
innacurate.

Best to remove ALL of it.

I'm not sure but I think it will eventually cause corrosion which will
affect
electrical performance.
