You�re a good man Rob and a good patriot, you defend your governments decisions even if they're wrong. Isn't the WEEE directive aimed at preventing electronics ending up in a landfill? This immediately takes away the leaching arguments and is a great

International certification programme for lead-free product test

Electronics Forum | Tue Feb 03 09:36:05 EST 2004 | davef

Unfortunately, IPC-D-279, IPC-TM-650, IPC-TR-464, and MIL-STD-810 will not answer your questions, because they do NOT address LF-solders. Even the tests in IPC-9701 need to be modified for LF-solders, because: * LF-solder has different creep behavior

lead bearing components in lead-free boards

Electronics Forum | Sun Oct 09 08:28:04 EDT 2005 | davef

First, no one knows very much about the relaibility of Pb-free assemblies, much less Pb-free solder with Pb-bearing components. Second, we do know that Pb-free components work with PB-bearing solder. Third, based on comparison laboratory testing,

Tin-lead wave soldering using a lead-free machine

If you're asking about wave solder machine, yes you can run Sn/Pb in a "Pb Free" machine. The concern is that when its time to run Pb Free you're going to have to remove all the parts from the solder pot to remove all the Pn/Pb solder residue from po

You do know what will happen if Europes eco deskjockey politicians get a hold of this document, don't you Patrick? SAC will be next on the scraplist. I thought VOC was the next thing to go, but this looks equally bad. I've thought of another brill

I heard something interesting yesterday on American satellite radio news. Reebok has been making little Pb (WML, Pb is the chemical symbol for Lead) "ad-ons" to their children's shoes causing kids to swallow these things and die from Lead-Poisoning:

Hi Patrick, I'm patriotic to a point & that doesn't include supporting crap decisions, & those that have handled the ROHS & WEEE implementation have been beyond useless & should be locked in a lead lined room with Roman plumbing. Yes we need to r

Yes, unfortunately a lot of datasheets these days do not contain the temperature resistance to determine if it can handle the PIP application. In the past I have always used a 250 C at a min of 5 sec for the material. Also, the part should have sta
