Tin Lead Solder Wire Sn60Pb40 60 40


Tin Lead Solder Wire Sn60Pb40 60 40

Solder Wire 60 40

Tin Lead Solder Wire 60 40, scientifically known as Solder Wire Sn60Pb40, is a soldering material composed of 60% tin (Sn) and 40% lead (Pb). This solder wire is revered for its balanced composition, offering a versatile solution for soldering tasks and ensures effective soldering. The alloy maintains a balanced composition to provide a consistent melting point and optimal malleability. It has similar solderability to solder wire 63 37 but has slightly cheaper price.

How to use Tin Lead Solder Wire Sn60Pb40 60 40?

Clean the soldering iron tip with sponge before starting.


Heat up the soldering iron to allow it to heat up to the appropriate temperature.


Tin the soldering iron tip by applying a small amount of solder to the tip of the soldering iron. This is called "tinning" and helps improve heat transfer during soldering.


Prepare the workpiece, and ensure that the surfaces to be soldered are clean and free from oxidation or contaminants.


Conduct soldering by touching the soldering iron tip to the joint to make the solder melt and flow evenly onto the joint.

Precaution for using Tin Lead Solder Wire Sn60Pb40 60 40:

Use in a Well-Ventilated Area: Always solder in a well-ventilated space, such as a fume hood or near an open window, and use exhausting fan. Proper ventilation helps to dissipate harmful fumes and reduce the risk of inhaling lead vapors.


Wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): Consider wearing appropriate personal protective equipment, including safety glasses, gloves, and a lab coat or apron, to minimize skin and eye contact with solder and flux.


Avoid Ingestion and Hand-to-Mouth Contact: Never eat, drink, or smoke while working with leaded solder. Wash your hands thoroughly after handling solder and before eating or touching your face.
