Hydrostatic Extrusion of Rosin Core Solder Wire

  • N. Ahmed


Solder is a basic industrial material. The consumption of solder in the United States alone is currently about 9 × 108 kg (100,000 tons). Solder is used for making connections, as a filler material and as a sealing compound. Most solder applications require the use of a flux together with a solvent. This flux prevents oxidation of the surface to be soldered and enhances the adhesion characteristics of solder. It is often common practice to enclose the flux in the core of the solder. A host of different compositions are available for both the flux and the solder to suit specific user requirements.
