When used in through-hole applications, a binary alloy (such as cobalt-enhanced) is much easier to maintain operating specifications when compared to a tertiary alloy (such as SAC 305); thus, less solder pot maintenance becomes necessary.
The specimens were cast in special ceramic moulds with the starting seed crystals, made of the Ni-W binary alloy, placed in the mould.
