Mixing lead free chemistry

I have the ability to offer both SAC and SN100C lead free alloys to my customer base. What might occur if a customer is already using SAC305 in their wave and they want to save money and go to SN100C. They now are mixing, tin,silver,copper with tin,copper, nickel. Any thoughts on problems that might occur?

Dump the pot and put in the SN100C. Don't mix, too much tin.

We think it will make little difference to your customer. It really depends on your customer's end-use environment though. Tough to guess.

In a short time, both of pots will be "SAC" though.
