Easily remove components by absorbing excess solder with an soldering iron. Also used to remove shorts.
Desoldering braid, also known as desoldering wick or solder wick, is finely braided copper wire coated with rosin flux. The end of a length of braid is placed over the soldered connections of a component being removed. It is a fine mesh of flux-coated, copper strands that absorbs solder when heated. Easier and more effective than a solder-sucker, the braid can be used to remove solder that bridges surface mount connections.
Note: Do not force on PCB pad to avoid damage to tracks.
