We have experienced a problem with tin leaching or discoloration of lead terminals on random parts on solder side of a paste/paste operation. The profile has been used on previous production runs and there doesn't appear to be any heat damage to othe

We have encountered what appears to be mask discoloration after wave soldering. The areas of concern coincide with the areas that were exposed selectively by fixtures during wave soldering, dominated by one date code of PCB with a slightly different

Peter are you having fun with solder masks erwat? We saw this years ago with LPI solder masks. It shows occasionally with other masks. We agree with Russ. If nothing [eg, alcohol, flux thinner, acetonitrile, or water] dissolves the haze, then it

I usually see this with mask that is not fully cured from the PCB shop. This probably agrees with the baking statement that you made.

Hi fellow professionals, Wondering whether anyone has experience with solder splashing from component terminal. Have identified the source using the component without printing solder paste on PCB. Wondering the root-cause of the solder splashing fr

Could be that your temperature ramp up rate is too fast. This could cause the flux in the solder paste to burn off too rapidly. When that happens, it can expand as it heats up and burns off, causing the solder to get spread out from the pad.

It sounds like what you are seeing is leaching of the end cap. You need to check the manufacturer's spec. Many components have terminal barriers, which get a solder plating. Sometimes this plating process is not done well, and the solder plating le

Thanks for input, dyoungquist. The condition here is without any flux or paste applied. Solder from component terminal started splashing by itself when put through re-flow.

Erico:I can�t even imagine what this line looks like and what it has to do with the soldering problems without having a look at it. Also the restriction to touchup only is somewhat irritating to me. The only thing that I can think of is that in your
