ST-40 Tip Cleaner
|The cleaner itself is made from low-abrasive brass shavings. No water is required to use the tip cleaner, although it cleans the tip better than conventional sponges and reduces the temperature-loss that occurs when using a wetted sponge. The container is made of heat-resistant and slip-proof silicon rubber that is safe for both the soldering iron and the user.|

Using Lead-free solder
Lead-free solder's melting point is 34 degrees higher than conventional solder.
Extra heat is required to bring lead-free solder to liquid phase.
Effect on soldering iron tips - shorter tip life.
Points to Note when using lead-free solder
Use of lowest possible temperatures to minimizing the tip damage
However, when using lower operating temperatures with lead-free solder which has a higher melting point, operational efficiency will decrease.
Keeping tip temperature stable during work to increase productivity and improve solder joint reliability
However, continuous use of a soldering iron over long periods brings the temperature of the tip down, and effects the quality of the finished solder joint.
Practical Points: Key elements for longer tip life
3.1 Tip temperature
Tips used at 320 degree-Celsius last three times longer than that of tips used at 380 degree-Celsius-tips.
3.2 Solder Type
For any normal solder joint, three times more Lead-free solder is required compared to eutectic solder - therefore choice and price of solder is important.
3.3 Amount of solder used in each solder joint
Cored thread solder wire has flux in the core of the solder wire. The types of flux used in current lead-free solders is especially ACTIVE in order to assist solder wettability.
Therefore, using MORE of a solder wire with MORE active flux, commensurately decreases tip life.
Merits of goot RX-802AS
- Superior heat recovery
Built-in high-powered heater (72W) capable of delivering enough power to maintain stable tip temperatures, even under different soldering work conditions. Minimal heat loss means the user doesn't have to set the station at a higher set temperature. Capable of being set at lower temperatures, therefore decreasing tip degeneration when soldering with high melting point lead-free solder.
- Thick iron coating
All RX-80HRT tips have a thick iron coating. For example, the thickness of the B-type iron coating is 0.5 mm or above, while the thickness of tips in competitor irons are between 0.25mm and 0.3mm. More thickness assures longer tip life. The following test report backs up this fact.

- Fastest in its class
Reaches tip temperature in 6 seconds. (Equivalent products amongst competitors take an average of 15 seconds)
- Superior sleep function (Patented)
Automatic switch off when inactive for a preset period of time. This is easier on the tips than switching the unit OFF. This unit's sleep function can be programmed to activate at preferred inactive time periods, or can be programmed to go into sleep mode at a certain drop in tip temperature, therefore applicable to a variety of work conditions. (Competitor stations have one set mode only.) Further, before sleep mode activates, the sleep lamp flashes, warning the user that the the unit is about to enter sleep mode.
- Light and compact handpiece
The soldering iron weighs 27g, the lightest in the 70W station class. (Competitor models weigh 30g.) The soldering unit cord is designed with a thin and very pliable cable with the diameter 4.0. (Competitor cable diameter - 4.6.)
RX-802AS Handpiece compared to competitors:
It is neglected point but, the biggest selling point of the RX-802AS is that the whole iron length of the handpiece is shorter than competitor irons. It is not enough that the distance between tip and handpiece be short. Pulling force from the cable is applied to the tip evertime the iron is moved. This has adverse effects for operation. Lessening this force is important. Shorter iron length makes this force smaller.
- Easy-change tip
One-Step-Slide tip can be changed while the tips remain hot.
RX-802AS Replacement tips compared to competitors:
6.1. No tools needed for changing the tip, also no heat-resistance pads!
6.2. Tips can be stored in the RX-802AS soldering iron stand which comes with the unit. The user must purchase separately with some competitor stations
6.3. The tips are designed NOT to come in contact with the surface when placed on a workbench.
- Standard tip included with the station
Standard tip is included with this unit. This is not offered with competitor’s stations.
