I heard that Steam Aging (storage) tests would be inappropriate for gold finishes. Is this a correct statement? If so, what are the reasons? How bad is the shelf life of ENIG

We�d say that it�s incorrect that ENIG solderability protection cannot be steam aged. It�s true the immersion tin and silver cannot be steam aged. We believe that most of the issues surrounding the poor performance of ENIG after steam aging is attr
