I am trying to tin some wires as they won't stick to the IC pins that I'm soldering them to. The problem I am having is that the solder won't stick to the wire.
My iron is fine as can solder other things just fine. I also tried a different wire and the solder stuck very well and I was easily able to solder them to the connectors, this wire is just too thick so I have to use the other one. I have tried to get the solder to attach to the wire with and without flux but no luck.
These are the wires I'm using: Specification: Type: 30AWG Total length: 280m/11023.6" Material: Tin Plated Copper, Plastic Outer diameter of single core wire: Approx. 0.55mm Diameter of copper core: Approx. 0.25mm Temperature resistance: 80 degrees
This is the solder I am using:
Can anyone give me any tips to get it to stick, it's giving me a headache !
Thank you in advance.
