See "IPC-4554 Specification for Immersion Tin Plating for Printed Circuit Boards" 3.2.1 Immersion Tin Thickness. The most common reason for solderability issues with the white tin surface coating during multiple thermal excursions is a thin white ti

Hi everyone, I am starting to use the lead free process and I had a few wetting problems (solder did not reach top side) at the wave soldering process once the pcb had passed our smt line (one heat pass). From what I understand, I have had a problem

IPC Plating Committee is presently working on a specification for immersion tin [IPC-4554 Specification for Immersion Tin Plating for Printed Circuit Boards] as a solderable surface finish. Immersion tin is normally deposited at 30 to 60 microinches.

We are investigating alternatives to HASL finishes for more dense PWBs. OSP is not a good choice because of low solid flux and possibly long shelf life. Immersion gold is expensive and so far has been more difficult to wave solder. Has anyone had
