[7-9], revealed that the relatively high melting point and good electrical properties of the Sn-Sb solder makes it suitable in the step soldering
technology, where soldering is applied more than once during manufacturing.
This makes for a two step soldering
process, which inherently costs more and consumes more time to build a completed assembly.
