About the book: Assessing the scientific and technological aspects of lead-free soldering, this reference 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. 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, plating lead-free soldering in electronics, and wave soldering.
