Lead Free Usage | 11 December, 2006

All:

Good morning. I'm writing this morning trying to find out what, right now, is the most used solder alloy out there, industry wide, for lead free applications. I'm talking strictly for reflow, not wave. I have to assume SAC305 is by far the leader, but I'd like something definitive to show customers to try and steer them away from some of the more exotic alloys they come up with, wanting to use them only because they're different and "someone told them it's a good idea", you know? I've looked everywhere on the net for something hard and factual but haven't been able to find anything remotely current with that information. Can you guys help a brother out? I'd appreciate it! Thanks.

Thanks fellas. (That was quick!) It's tough to find anything with collective data, I mean from the industry, as far as "What are you using now?" kind of thing. For the record, all we've used here since the beginning is SAC 305.
