Metallic Resources’ SC995e (Sn99.5/Cu0.5/Co) electrolytic lead free alloy is specially designed for use in all hot air leveling soldering applications. Hot air leveling solder pots using electrolytic solder provide energy savings, extended pot life, reduced thermal stress, and reduced potential of contamination. Lower viscosity improves the fluidity, which in turn provides faster, more uniform wetting. The electrolytic manufacturing process creates a solder that has a more uniform deposition of solder onto the bare board, while at the same time creating a smoother surface. It assures much greater batch-to-batch consistency for predictable solder performance in the solder pot.
