XTRADUR tips are furnished tinned ready for use.
Keep the working surface tinned at all times.
Keep excess solder on tip during prolonged idle periods.
Burned solder or flux residue may be wiped off with wet cellulose sponge.
Never file or break coating or grip with pliers because the copper base will then become exposed and wear like an ordinary tip.
Use good soldering tip practices such as removing the tip frequently to prevent sticking and keeping the tip fully inserted in the iron at all times.
Note: If tip surface is dirty, cool and clean with tip scrubber. Heat tip just hot enough to melt solder and retin with flux core solder immediately.
