Customers demand high quality products for electronics work. Goot desoldering wick is the best when used for removing excess solder during any high temperature elctronics work. This can be used for cleaning GPU pads on the mainboards or the back of the BGA chips after removal. See our other auctions for kits including the templates and tools needed for reballing GPU chips on XBOX 360 and Playstation 3 consoles.
Desoldering requires application of heat to the solder joint and removing the molten solder so that the joint may be separated. Desoldering may be required to replace a defective component, to alter an existing circuit, or to salvage high value components for possible re-use. Excess application of heat may damage electronic components or destroy the bond between a printed circuit trace and the underlying substrate.
A single joint can usually be quickly undone with a soldering iron and the use of either vacuum bulb, plunger, or desoldering braid. Once the solder has been melted, the vacuum device is applied to withdraw solder from the joint by a rapid movement of air. Desoldering braid draws up the molten solder by capillary action; the braid usually contains the same flux as solder.
Multiple-lead devices require special care in removal. For through-hole mounted devices, special soldering bits that facilitate even distribution of heat over all the leads at one time can be used. For factory re-work, a temperature controlled rework station may contain such bits, hot-air systems, and a vacuum system to facilitate removal of the part. Large surface-mounted components require special tooling for production desoldering, although various and improvised methods can be successfully applied for field service. In some instances it is better to destroy the part by cutting off its leads and removing the leads individually, instead of risking damage to the printed circuit board.
Hobbyists may even use a torch or hot air gun to rapidly heat all parts on a board and remove them; such methods are extremely difficult to apply without damaging parts or boards and may result in toxic fumes. Of course, all soldering work (with flux) involves some amount of toxic fumes, which is why ventilation is important.

Q: Is this solder wick good for working with BGA chips?
A: This solder wick is the industry standard for solder removal for all types of electronics work.
Q: How do you use this wick when working with game console mainboard repairs?
A: See the video above for more details on this process. While holding the wick over the area where solder needs to be removed apply heat by putting a hot iron on top of the wick. See our other auctions for flux for all the different parts of the mainboard when removing solder.
