Can Silver Cause Solder Embrittlement?
Can Silver Cause Solder Embrittlement?
A few of our components have leads with a silver finish. Will silver cause solder embrittlement? Is removal of silver needed or can it be soldered using 63/37 solder? Phil Zarrow and Jim Hall, The Assembly Brothers, address this question and share their own experiences.
