What is Jell Flux?

Lately I've seen a lot of products described as "JEL-FLUX."

How does it differ from traditional paste flux? What are its advantages and disadvantages and what are the chemical components that makes it a jell?

Experts Comments

Looks to me that "jel-flux" may be a trade name for high viscosity flux used in the manufacture of jewelry.

GEL-FLUX is a generic description used to describe the high viscosity fluxes used for rework operations for; QFPs, PLCC and Array (BGA) components.
