In-house solder analysis

Control of solder tin

Why is the regular inspection and adjustment of solder tin important? A soldering bath is filled with a certain alloy of metals used for soldering. The composition of this alloy and the permitted quantities of contaminants are established in international standards such as: IPC J-STD-006 and NEN-EN-ISO 61190-1-3.

Each element in an alloy has an effect on the properties such as:

  • the melting point
  • electrical conductivity
  • thermal resistance
  • solderability
  • oxidation level

During soldering, metals and elements of components, PC boards, fastening materials and machine parts arrive in the soldering bath. Regular analysis has the purpose of anticipating any negative consequences of non-compliant values in the composition of the solder tin.

Regular analysis is recommended

Have your lead-containing, lead-free and low melting point soldering alloys analysed by us, and check whether they still suffice with regard to the appropriate standards. We draw up an analysis report and our expert will contact you to discuss the result. We examine the possible solutions for improvements together with you. Regular monitoring and sample analysis can prevent high costs.

Report your samples using the form below and send them to:
