The oxidation of 63Sn/37Pb at typical soldering temperatures
- 45 Downloads
63Sn/37Pb is a common solder used in the electronics industry. The oxidation of this alloy on a soldering iron in air follows the parabolic rate law from 204–454°C and 0–600 sec. Transmission electron microscopy was used to determine the scale thickness, composition, and morphology.
