Replating a Gold Connector | 15 December, 2008

Dear Smtnetters:

We have a customer wanting to strip off or overplate a gold microplated connector with tin (gold disposal too difficult) . Does anyone know if this is feasible?

Replating a Gold Connector | 15 December, 2008

J-STD-001 requires that solderable surfaces of components and connectors be degolded prior to soldering. As proven methods for removal of the gold plating and replacing it with tin/lead, MIL-STD-2000 and J-STD-001 endorse[d] either: * Double dip (two solder pots) immersion ... OR * Flowing solder wave. Further, J-STD-001 calls for documention showing that your method of removing the gold is sufficient to provide for reliable assembly operations.
