When rosin flux activated with amine halides is used in soldering printed circuit boards, metal halides are formed; these halides cannot be removed with organic solvents and thus may cause corrosion. The use of alkanol amines as solder fluxes has been investigated. After soldering, the flux can be removed by rinsing with water. Throughout this investigation radioisotopes were used to identify the compounds studied.
