Default About solder

I am currently usind Billiton CW cored solder wire 1mm - which specifies a flux type RS4/1/127. I don't know how active this type of flux is.

I was thinking about moving to Kester 44 63/37 solder. Will this solder be more active (the flux)? Is there any potential "danger"? I use an old Weller WECP-20 soldering station.

Also, what is meant by "no-clean" solder?

Default Expand this to include other types of solder for SMD, etc.

We need help in picking the right solder for the right job. I have seen solder
with copper, silver, etc. What solder is best for SMD? What about lead free?
We also need best brands and types. Come on "experts", let us know
what is right or wrong with each type of solder.
