Dear all,

Recently our lead-free samples being rejected due to very dull and sometimes grainy and very porous surface on solder joints. This samples was flow thru' the lead-free wave soldering with SN100C alloy composition. Referring IPC-A-610 D, lead-free solder may produced dull, matte, gray and grainy apperaring that are normal and acceptable.

Can anyone comment why our samples were rejected ?

Best regards,
