Product Description

The 460 tip cleaner is an effective method of solder tip cleaning during soldering. The low abrasion pad is manufactured from brass shavings and inserted into a heavy duty stainless steel holder with a rubber base. Wet sponges will cool the hot solder tip and will eventually start to break-up causing pieces of sponge to be picked up by the soldering iron. With the Xytronic 460 cleaner this doesn't happen!

No water needed so No tip temperature loss

More effective cleaning than a sponge

Stable non slip holder

Replacement sponges available
