What are the long term issues with high tin content solders on parts plated with silver over copper? Is it possible that the silver will be absorbed by the solder then over a long period of time the tin will react with the copper causing it to part

Hi All was wondering is there anything I should be aware of or look out for if using parts with SnBi (Pb free) lead plating with Sn/Pb/Ag solder paste? I was always lead to believe that mixng lead and bismuth caused problems or are the bismuth levels

on sections ive looked at with 7 microns of silver and 4microns of copper, the silver had been totally absorbed into the solder in most places and a large amount in some places all the copper as well, so i think the answer is that to provide long ter

You have provided very little information. Two similar possibilites come to mind: poor pad solderability protection and old boards. POOR SOLDERABILITY PROTECTION: Maybe the nickel plating under the gold is oxidized, contaminated, or otherwise very

Silver on your copper or brass part is a solderability protection. The silver diffuses into the solder and you solder to the base metal, either the copper or brass in your case. Soldering to copper is well known. The issues are soldering to brass

How fast is your print head speed? I've found that I had to decrease my print head speed to get the paste to stick to gold pads. Not exactly sure why - but the ol' instincts worked well.
