Soldering Tip Cleaning and Daily Soldering

How to Solder with Magicpen Solder Perfecter

Soldering tip cleaning process:

  1. Clean the rust and corrosion on soldering iron tip using solder cleaning wire, fine sandpaper, and other tools while it’s cold
  2. Adjust the soldering iron temperature to 350 °C / 660 °F, max if no temp setting
  3. Apply a thick solder wire to the tip for the initial coating (Thick solder wires generally have a high ratio of tin and resin)
  4. Dip in only the tip of the soldering iron to the soldering iron tip cleaner 1-2 times for 2 seconds
  5. Clean the tip. E.g., with coiled tip cleaner

*Repeat this process as necessary to ensure the tip is glazed

  2. Then proceed by touching the solder wire you wish to use and continue with the soldering process
