Default Where to find Amtech 559 in the UK - aka what's the best flux

Hi all,

I am in the UK and cannot find a reliable source for Amtech 559 here. I can find it from Amazon but does not seem to be genuine - one one listing the "Amtech Europe" company which sells it also sells PS5 and games etc.

To be honest I've been purchasing the 559 from Amazon for a while but I'd really love to source it from a more reputable supplier - besides that I do not like Amazon!

Any advice? Alternatively, is there another good solder flux that I can source in the UK? This would also be used for BGA reballing/reflow.

Thank you!

I'd like to avoid Ebay and Amazon to be honest.

I don't fund the penis rocket owner either, but the stuff off Ebay was bough from a distributor and was genuine.
These guys sell it also. https://bga-reworking.co.uk/product/...cky-flux-10cc/

I had found bgareworking before but they don't have either sizes in stock unfortunately.
Can you link the ebay seller (if allowed by the rules)?
