    Can anyone recommend a brand of aluminium tape for heat reflection when doing BGA rework? I used to use "Mammoth" but a couple of years ago they changed the adhesive to one that leaves a residue after it has been removed. Since then I have been using some non-branded tape but it's no longer in stock. Over the last week I have tried "Advance" and "Brackit" but both of those leave a residue.

    Please help!

    It's for protecting heat sensitive components. Not really necessary when using hot air but I use IR
