Precautions for hand soldering operations 1) Soldering operations using lead-free solder are basically the same as those using tin- lead solder, however, due to the lead-free solder's characteristics of being difficult to melt, wet, and spread, as well as being hard, a soldering iron needs to be applied for a longer period of time than when soldering with conventional tin-lead solder.
  • Page 172 CHAPTER 4 DISASSEMBLY AND RE-ASSEMBLY 6. Soldering irons When soldering is performed manually using lead-free solder, a soldering iron that has little reduction in its temperature needs to be used. This refers to a soldering iron that has a smaller degree of decrease in the temperature at the soldering iron's tip, such as when the soldering iron is applied to the base metal or solder is supplied, and the temperature is soon returned to the specified temperature.
