From technical point of view: it should not be a problem to mix Pb with Pb Free components soldered with a LF solder process. You have to take care about the max temperature allowed on your Pb components and make sure they can withstand the higher

Good afternoon, We run mixed LF/SnPb process for most of out products. Most of chip passives have lead free termination and some of them tend towards blistering issue. SnPb solder wets component in very strange way. Wetting phenomena seems to be abn

Good afternoon, 1. Yes, most of all I suspect the components. Could you explain what does mean "reflothermal recipe"? Ramp-to-spike? Ramp-soak-spike? Something special? Thanks. 2. Void is really huge. This voiding differs from "standard" voiding ef

When soldering your full tin (no lead) and Pb95/Sn5 solder components, you need to modify your PbSn reflow recipe to compensate for the higher melting point of the changed solder alloy [with your Sn62/Pb36/Ag2 solder paste] on those component leads.

Hello, I am currently trying to isolate internal fallout problems with very low yield substrates mixed with great yields and have recently found that we are using a Sn62/Pb36/Ag2 solder paste with full tin (no lead) components as well as Pb95/Sn5 sol

We are running our prduction (TV's)with Lead Free Solder, since 1 year ago, but we still have a lot of Electrolityc Capacitor (Thruhole and SMT)in stock that are for PB Solder. We have to use them before February-06. Do anybody know if there is a pro

So as far as pb free compliance in EU there would be no residuals from pb on the pcb's to speak of. We also have deionization cabinet with chealate filter for heavy metals that recirculates the wash water.

Well, most of the capacitor are thru hole, then pcb's goes to adhesive process upsidedown to continue SMT process in which , maximun tempetarure is 120�, so temperature is not problem. About SMT capacitorS, I will check temperature specs before mount

Watch the solder profiles allowed for these caps. Most electrolytics cannot withstand high heat. Even RoHS compliant Electrolytics are often rated for peak 245C, 3 secs max, for example. Nowhere close to the 260C 10-20 sec you usually like to see.
