Description: Sn63/Pb37 Electropure™ is a high purity alloy that is composed of 63% tin and 37% lead. ElectropureTM is alloyed in a proprietary method that results in a low drossing, high wetting solder. The ElectropureTM process reduces suspended oxides in the solder, thus reducing drossing, improving flow, and reducing bridging during soldering. Sn63/Pb37 is a eutectic alloy with a melting point of 183°C (361°F). Typical applications are wave soldering and plating where Sn63/Pb37 is primarily used as a coating for corrosion protection, and as a base for soldering. This alloy is available in bar, solid and cored wire, foil, spheres, preforms, powder, solder paste, ingot, and anode form.
SN100C® is a lead-free solder alloy developed by Nihon Superior in Japan. SN100C® offers user-friendly properties and has been proven in commercial production since 1999. The addition of nickel improves the wetting and flow properties of the cost effective tin-copper eutectic. This makes it possible to achieve excellent results in wave soldering at process temperatures comparable to the tin-lead solder it replaces. Performance in wave soldering at least matches that of more expensive silver-containing alloys and the resulting joints are smoother and brighter. SN100C® is available in bar, solid and cored wire, and solder paste.
