Step by Step Care and Maintenance to Extend and Maximize Solder Tip Life

With the introduction of lead free soldering applications, the melting temperature of solder has increased from 190C to 220C or more. The increase in solder melting temperature has caused important changes in the industry.From a consumer perspective, lead-free products are now safer for the people who work with them and better for the environment (disposal of lead products into landfills).However from a production standpoint, the higher melting temperature means soldering irons must deliver more thermal energy to the joints. This has caused the soldering temperature to increase and has increased the need for proper tip care even more.
