Does anybody know where you can get Canada Bolson Oil or Suitable alternative that is optically clear to test the plating in a PTH for outgassing?

We could never find that stuff either. Must be from some Euroland source. As an alternative, try: Cedarwood immersion oil [Fisher Scientific, S79956]

Aren't the solder balls a result of the blowholes? you know the solder that came from the blowholes is now the solderballs on the resist! hahaha :-) Russ

It is a lead free process with sac305. We use goldfinish FR4 boards. Preheat is between 110 and 115 degrees. I am sure it is a moisture problem because longer stored boards have more blowholes. What is the maxium period to store the boards without

If the copper on your PTH is not one thou, you will get blowholes. With the cost of copper going through the ceiling, you will get less than one thou of copper plating from substandard suppliers. Consider baking your boards prior to wave soldering

Thanks for all the answers. Is it also possible with lead free soldering to produce little holes in the solder that are not blowholes? We see holes where you can see the end of the hole (not very deep). The holes are always on the same places.

Right angle PTH lead profile = blowholes

That's a good idea. We did pull the bridge piece off of one just to see what happens with the receptacles only, so no flux blockage. They flowed great with no blowholes, but also filled with solder. :/

Anyone can help me how many percentage of blowholes and pinholes if i do the followings: 1. Increase copper plating thickness more than 25 microns. 2. Pre Baking of PCB to remove gassing by drying out the PCB's

I have problems with blowholes during the wave soldering process. I already find out that the stock time between reflow and wave is the most important. The longer the boards are in stock the more blowholes we have. We don't have a climat controlled
