|Vapor phase soldering (VPS)||Go To Index||Void formation|
The term vehicle is used for fillers for drugs or binding oils for paints (e.g. varnish). It provides a means to bind the paint pigments and trigger the formation of a continuous layer. This is why it is also known as binding agent. Flux should fulfill this function in the solder paste. In analogy to the pattern of the vehicle, the expressions carrier medium and carrier substance are also in circulation.
