October 22, 2012 -
Available in bar solder form, lead (Pb)-free SN100C solder alloy is comprised of tin-copper-nickel and germanium and does not contain silver or bismuth. Eutectic alloy, supporting bridge- and icicle-free soldering, produces smooth, bright, well-formed fillets free of micro-cracks regardless of cooling rate. With optimized through-hole penetration and topside fillet formation, alloy does not require nitrogen atmosphere and will not erode copper from holes, pads, and tracks.
