Ultrapure K100LD Bar Solder - Lead-free Bar Solder Alloy
As a response to low cost/low copper dissolution alloy, the team at Kester created the Ultrapure K100LD. This K100 LD Solder contains controlled metallic dopants to stabilize the solder joint’s grain structure. It also reduces the dissolution of copper into the solder pot. This bar solder also makes the common defects such as icicling and bridging a thing of the past. Finally, the optimized grain structure leads to shinier solder joints than standard lead-free alloy substances.
SAC305 - Sn96.5Ag3.0Cu0.5 - Extruded Low Dross Bar Solder
Lead-free wave soldering processes are known to produce a larger amount of dross than standard leaded processes. As a result, Kester manufactures all of their lead-free bar solder products with anti-drossing technology to improve process control and to allow the user to get the most value for the money with minimal maintenance costs. Kester Ultrapure SAC305 Bar Solder was designed to minimize the amount of dross generated in wave soldering,selective soldering or dip soldering processes. Kester Ultrapure SAC305 yields less dross, bright solder joints, and a reduction in defects in wave, selective and dip soldering processes.
JanelOnline.com is a Master Stocking Distributor of Kester Solder for many decades.
In 2006, 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.
