Lead Free Immersion SIlver PCB-->Creeping Corrosion

Electronics Forum | Thu Sep 17 23:36:35 EDT 2009 | Sean

All, We know that incomplete immersion silver could potentially lead this creeping corrosion. Is there any way to check bare PCB for incomplete immersion silver coverage, especially on the via hole area? Thanks, Sean.

Hi All, I have few questions about creeping corrosion that potentially happen on lead free immersion silver PCB as below: 1) What test that we can conducted to verify whether the failure we seen is due to creeping corrosion? 2) I heard that lead fr

Creeping corrosion occurs on bare metal. Most commonly, it is seen on boards with thin protective coatings [eg, bare copper, immersion silver, organic solderability preservative]. Look here: * enthone.com/docs/AlphaSTARCreeping.pdf * circuitree.com

Dear Davef, Thanks for sharing with me..I observed this creeping corrosion tend to appear on PCB via hole rather than other PCB location. Why this problem did not appear on PCB traces? Besides, I also notice that this problem only appear on the PC

Yes, electronics manufacturing is a volume producer of cardboard waste. If the components are ESD-critical, cardboard and most plastics are not ESD safe. Static charges can be generated on these materials during handling by the friction of dissimila

Steve, Let me try to give you a short answer to your question. A good book in soft soldering would talk about the excellent characteristics of leaded alloys and all the reasons why leaded alloys are very reliable. In short a good book would advice y
