As someone with a LOT of experience with the "low cost" alternative alloys, primarily SACX, I have one simple question....Are these shorts a new phenomena? WAS your process in control, and all of a sudden it's not? If the answer is YES, take a look a

We use SN100C for wave soldering and hand Lead free soldering and have had very good results. The wire cored solder for hand soldering flows good and makes very good solder joints. The SN100C in the wave solder machine also works very good. We use

I run two different waves here one with SAC305 with aqueous flux the other with SN100C and No clean flux. Does anyone see any issues with running product through either machine of course after changing the Flux type? I also only use SAC305 alloy for

Is there anybody out there doing this scenario: SAC 305 Reflow & SN100C Wave and Selective Can the 2 alloys be mixed on 1 board, say, SAC 305 for SMT, and SN100C for thru-hole? Are 2 different rework chemistries needed, or can one use SN100c wire

Russ is correct. We have been using SAC 305 for SMT and SN100C for wave and selective and repair for about a year. May switch to SN100C in SMT at some point if we can get some paste that wets better.

Maybe this piece of information will help. In China (just returned from visit) there are many factories that are using a dual temperature process using SAC305 or Sn100C and 42/58. Apparently this allows them to run their through hole parts through re

We have been using SAC 305 for reflow and Cobalt 995 (very similar to SN100C, only cheaper) for wave and rework for quite a while now with no issues that I'm aware of.

They are all compatible with each other. Data is at alpha metals website and FCT assembly Russ
