Book Description

Assessing the scientific and technological aspects of lead-free soldering, Lead-Free Soldering in Electronics considers the necessary background and requirements for proper alloy selection. It highlights the metallurgical and mechanical properties; plating and processing technologies; and evaluation methods vital to the production of lead-free solders in electronics.

A valuable resource for those interested in promoting environmentally-conscious electronic packaging practices!

Responding to increasing environmental and health concerns over lead toxicity, Lead-Free Soldering in Electronics discusses:

  • Soldering inspection and design
  • Mechanical evaluation in electronics
  • Lead-free solder paste and reflow soldering
  • Wave soldering
  • Plating lead-free soldering in electronics

    Lead-Free Soldering in Electronics will benefit manufacturing, electronics, and mechanical engineers, as well as undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.
