Help choosing the right tin and flux

Postby jansaris » Thu Feb 23, 2017 8:01 pm

Hello forum connections,

For manual soldering of wire- and connector terminations I am looking for an overview, preferably in table form, information of solder products and their features like:
- solder melting temperature
- applications
- associated flux
- cleaning after soldering

Thanks in advance for your cooperation and help.

Kind regards,
Jan Saris

I for myself do not know about the existence of a list like this.
Does the table need to compare various brands as well, or just per brand? The only thing that comes close, is the table from J-STD-006 where alloys are compared. But these alloys are not regarded in conjunction with fluxes.
Keep calm and focus on soldering

Thanks for the comment.
Indeed, the table of J-STD-006 is the best for close to where I was looking for.
Of course, it is more important to focus on the soldering itself.

Hello Ramon,

Do have an copy from the table of J-STD-006 for me?
Thanks in advance and have a nice weekend.

Sorry about the delay. Table is the Appendix A extracted from J-STD006.

Lead-Free alloys

Pleas pay attention to Note 1 specifically!

When solder melts and forms a joint between two metal surfaces, it actually forms a metallurgical bond by chemically reacting with the other metal surfaces. There are many different types of flux available on the market. Each will include two basic parts, chemicals and solvents, Check flux to ensure that it is appropriate for your application. The chemical part includes the active portion, while the solvent is the carrying agent. The flux does not become a part of the soldered joint, but retains the captured oxides. It is usually the solvent that determines the cleaning method required to remove the remaining residue after the soldering is completed.
