STRATOLOY alloys are soft solders according to a Stannol specification with significantly lower impurities in comparison with alloys which are manufactured according to S-Sn60Pb40E or S-Sn63Pb37E (ISO 9453:2006).
STRATOLOY alloys are manufactured from ultra pure metals. Due to a special treatment, possible impurities (oxides, sulphides) as can still be present in other alloys are removed from the alloy.
- Reduced oxidation rate and lower dross formation as compared with conventional alloys.
- Better wetting characteristics even for solder bath temperatures which are somewhat below the usual operating temperature -> reduces the risk of damage to heat-sensitive components.
- Significantly lower amount of oxide during melting and in continuous operation than for solders which have not been produced according to the STRATOLOY manufacturing process.
