Soft soldering fluxes -- Test methods -- Part 16: Flux efficacy test, wetting balance method
ISO 9455-16:2013 specifies a method for the assessment of the efficacy of a soft soldering flux, known as the wetting balance method. It gives a qualitative assessment of the comparative efficacy of two fluxes (for example, a standard and a test flux), based on their capacity to promote wetting of a metal surface by liquid solder. The method is applicable to all flux types in liquid form classified in ISO 9454‑1.
