SolderLab.com Debuts PotWatch Service

Jun 20, 2011

Solderlab.com, an independent solder analysis lab, introduces PotWatch, an easy-to-use Web-based service that provides users with a scheduled method for testing, tracking and validating solder pot alloy purity.

With PotWatch, solders within most tin/lead and SAC alloy matrixes are tested to the J-STD-006B standard. Solder collection kits automatically are mailed to SolderLab.com customers at the timing and frequency of their choice.

SolderLab.com’s PotWatch process takes full coverage monitoring and testing of solder pots to the next level, and makes the chore of solder purity and compliance testing simpler and safer than ever. Once registered for PotWatch, SolderLab.com takes over the responsibility of maintaining its customers’ schedule for solder testing.

To begin service, visit www.SolderLab.com, log in and place an order. The order will specify how often testing is needed and how many samples are required for each test interval. At the appropriate times, SolderLab.com will send an e-mail notification indicating the next test date and will follow up with the delivery of the PotWatch Solder Collection Kit. To complete the order, users can simply fill the solder collection cup included in the kit with solder, fill out the enclosed sample information card, attach the prepared return address label on the same envelope and mail it back.

Within a few days of receiving the sample, customers will receive a detailed SolderLab.com Certificate of Analysis via e-mail. The service is available at various intervals, and samples can be scheduled on a monthly, quarterly, biannual or annual basis.


SolderLab.com is an independent solder analysis lab based in San Diego, CA, serving the electronics industry. The company provides solder analysis of wave solder machines and solder pots, and tests for impurities based on J-STD-006B for most tin and lead-based alloys.
