The melting temperature of lead-free solder is higher than that of leaded solder by 30ºC to
40ºC (54ºF to 72ºF). Use of a soldering iron designed for lead-based solders to repair
product made with lead-free solder may result in damage to the component and or PCB
being soldered. Great care should be made to ensure high-quality soldering when servicing
this product especially when soldering large components, through-hole pins, and on PCBs
as the level of heat required to melt lead-free solder is high.
