Customer Comments

  • Is there a suggested temp for this solder?

    • I second this request. From my understanding lead-free solder often has a higher melting temperature than leaded, and different soldering irons (or settings on one) can certainly have different temperatures. It would be good to have the melting point along with any recommended temperature clearly noted somewhere.

  • I’m not sure about the lead-free part. I just did a lead test on a tube I just ordered. I really hope my order was incorrectly picked, because the lead-test I did came out positive (containing lead). I really hope I accidentally received TOL-09162 (the leaded version).

  • Doesn’t “60/40” generally refer to the tin/lead content of the solder? In that case, there’s nothing 60/40 about lead-free solder.

    • “with a 60/40 no clean, water soluble resin core"
      That explains it.

  • I have several tubes of solder purchased from Sparkfun. How can identify what type of solder it is?

  • “This is you basic” should be “This is your basic”

  • I tested against the lead free I had at home and I was not impressed. Why? Because this one took much longer time to melt.

Good !

Nice to solder , easy to pull packaging…

I really wanted to make a review for this product !

The thing is, it’s nearly impossible to differentiate the lead free and the leaded when you have both in your pocket, maybe you could ad a vinyl sticker on it ?
