SN100e Alloy A Lead-Free Silver Free Option Description:

This unique patented alloy has been developed as a lead free alternative for those now using costly SAC alloys and for those switching from lead containing Sn63/Pb37 alloys to the lead free process. SN100e is manufactured from tin, copper, and cobalt to create solder so pure it far exceeds the most common specification requirements. The lead-free solder alloy is RoHS compliant and reduces copper dissolution. This alloy provides brighter, shinier, less grainy solder joints when compared to other lead free alloys such as SAC305 and is much less expensive.

In wave solder operations, less solder is consumed in comparison to tin lead solder because the weight per cubic inch of the solder is lower. The lower viscosity improves the fluidity, which in turn improves the solder’s wetting capability and reduces necessary re-work including bridging, icicling, cobwebbing and flagging. This alloy is environmentally friendly, and generates less dross compared to all other “virgin grade” LF solders. Less dross generation results in more soldered joints per pound of solder and greater cost-effectiveness through less waste. This alloy exceeds specification J-STD-006.

SN100e contains cobalt. Competitor alloys contain nickel. The ratio of nickel commonly used in comparison to cobalt requires more frequent monitoring due to the increased depletion of the nickel in comparison to cobalt during process resulting in an increased cost for those using the nickel containing alternative alloys.

VERSATILE USES

SN100e is primarily used in printed circuit board assembly operations common to the electronics market. It is an available choice lead free alloy for the following Qualitek products:

  • Solder Paste
  • Wire Solder
  • Bar Solder
  • Solder Spheres
  • Solder Powder

MIXING LEAD FREE ALOYS

SN100e is compatible with all SAC and Sn/Cu alloys. SN100e performs with ENIG, immersion tin, immersion silver, OSP, and hot air leveled board finishes. SN100e provides the ability to standardize on one lead-free alloy for all soldering processes (wave, SMT, selective, and re-work).

SN100e CONTAINS COBALT

Other known alloys contain nickel. The ratio of nickel commonly used in comparison to cobalt requires more frequent monitoring due to the increased depletion of the nickel in comparison to cobalt during process resulting in an increased cost for those using the nickel containing alternative alloys.

CERTIFICATION

Certificates of Analysis and Conformance are automatically provided with each shipment. Qualiteks SN100e solders meet or exceed the requirements of Specification J-STD-006.
