Thus the melting points of tin, silver and copper, the ingredients of most popular Pb-free solders, all can be depressed below 200[degrees]C, well below the eutectic melting point of 217[degrees]C.
LEAD HAS BEEN an indispensable element in solders due to its high ductility, reasonable mechanical strength, low eutectic melting temperature with tin, low surface tension and low cost.
The original composition of the alloy was SnBi42 with a eutectic melting point of 139[degrees]C.
