Forward and Backward Soldering Compatibility

Just when you thought you understood all this lead and lead-free production, components of all types, leaded and lead-free start showing up in a variety of assemblies. How do you live in a world with only lead-free components that may end up in a leaded process and on the flip side, leaded components that might wind up in a lead-free process? Learn the process fundamentals and metallurgical issues to help guide you through this messy mix.

Topics we will be reviewing are:

  • The real definition of this problem.
  • Why this issue is occurring and how it affects you.
  • What occurs in the soldering process in each case.
  • Recommendations and rules you can live by.
