The Conard-Abbott Beam offers a fast, convenient and economical process for testing solution stress in tin plating baths. Global RoHS (Regulation of Hazardous Substances) compliance requires the elimination of many toxic metals, including lead, from production materials and processes.
Tin-lead plating has been used in electronics applications for decades. Without lead, tin plating may develop "whiskers," which can cause product failure.
Extensive research on the topic suggests that the probability of whisker development increases substantially if the tin plating solution is "stressed" by depletion.
The Conard-Abbott Beam test quickly reveals the existence and degree of stress in tin plating baths.
