Description: We don’t want to hype this solder TOO much, but this could possibly be the best solder in the world. There, we’ve said it. This is a special blend made specifically for us and we love it. It all started as a quest to find the best solder to use in our production process and ended up being the best we’ve tried. The best part is that it’s lead free and has a water-soluble flux core.
This package contains 1/4lb of solder and has a diameter of 0.020" (0.5mm).
Mix: 96.35% Sn (Tin), 3.0% Ag (Silver), 0.5% Cu (Copper), 0.15% Sb (Antimony).
Based on 3 ratings:
This solder melts easily, but holds a firm grip. Even with mediocre soldeing skills, some of my classmates' cold joints made using this solder have held in mechanical connections. Yet, it is still very workable and flows with ease compared to a 60/40 solder I used to use.
… it’s still cumbersome to solder with it (for beginners, especially) as it doesn’t flow with the same ease as tin-lead alloys.
