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.
