Question: We are working with components with leads of tin/lead over nickel. After the manufacturing processes, some of the pins are exhibiting what appears to be flaking plating, leaving behind unsolderable surfaces. They will re-tin with flux, but reappear following steam-aging. Is this something you have encountered before?
