Solder wicking is where solder migrates to a surface or surfaces where its not intended. This may then result in open joints, solder shorts or the remaining solder volume not meeting your customers inspection criteria

Solder wicking can be seen on cable assembly, PCB manufacture, reflow soldering and other standard PCB assembly processes. Solder wicking can be beneficial in some situations where it is part of a defined plan to improve reliability on poor designs or where other assembly issues may benefit from just a little more solder
