Seven years ago the European Union Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive and Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS) set fourth the restriction on the use of leaded material on the majority of consumer electronic products. Today, if you are located in the US manufacturers may receive tax benefits by lowering the overall usage of leaded solder products.
Lead free bar solder typically has a higher melting point, however, there are lead free bars available on the market with lower heating temperatures.
