Lead-free solder alloy Sn/ag/bi, developed by Sandia National Labs. | 11 March, 1999

Hello everyone,

at the Institute for Manufacturing Automation and Production Systems of the University of Erlangen (Germany) one focus of our research activities is the use of lead-free solder alloys for electronics production. In different publications I read about an alloy made of Sn, Ag and Bi patented by Sandia National Labs. Now my question: Is this alloy avaiblable as a commercial solder paste or does anyone know whom to contact for further information about the properties and the processing of this alloy?

Thank you in anticipation

Regards, Marcus
