Paper Abstract

The behavior of melting solder has an important influence on the tiny joints of electronic products. In order to improve the properties of lead-free solder, a Sn-3.5Ag0.6Cu alloy was smelted using traditional and a modified technology, respectively. The solderability of the two alloys were investigated using a wetting balance method for the different conditions. The test results showed that the modified solder had good solderability, where the excellent flux used was rosin-ethanol or rosin-isopropanol solution. In experimental condition, when the added active agent is 0.4% of rosin mass or 0.1% of solution mass, the wetting velocity and wetting force can be improved 5 times and 1.5 times, respectively. The best soldering parameters are temperature levels less than or equal to 270°, and the soakage time in 2-3s.
