Electronic Repair

All over the world, for over 40 years, thousands of service people have counted on Techspray cleaners and Plato soldering tips and tools for their electronic repair needs.

Desoldering braid (wick) is an essential electronic repair tool that allows components to be replaced and excess solder (e.g. bridging) to be removed. Techspray offers desoldering wick that has faster wicking action, and no-clean wick that is the cleanest in the industry, making post-repair cleaning optional.

TraceTech PCB repair system allows any level of technician to quickly perform quality board repairs in-house without the use of expensive equipment or time-consuming and unsightly jumpers.

If cleaning is needed after repairing electronics, Techspray flux removers (defluxers) effectively clean off flux residues and other contaminants from printed circuit boards. Residues from higher, lead-free temperatures are more baked on and harder to clean. PWR-4™, G3®, E-LINE™ and Precision-V™ flux removers have been proven very effective at removing fluxes baked on at lead-free temperatures.

Plato is one of the largest manufacturers of solder tips in the world, producing tips to fit all of the most popular solder stations. The long life and fast heat recovery of a Plato solder tip provide the most efficient electronic repair operation possible.
