HOW TO FIND THE RIGHT SOLDER WIRE

Due to the many different applications and fields of use, we manufacture a wide range of solder wires. Our selection guide gives you the opportunity to choose your solder wire requirements and thus narrow down the selection.

Stannol Product Selector

The Selector Guide on the left gives you the chance to choose different characteristics and to find a product from our range. If you are not familiar with some of the terms, you can use the information box to display a brief explanation of the selected item.

WIRE FLUX TYPES

An important component of solder wires is the flux, which plays a crucial role in removing oxides from the metal surfaces to be soldered. The Stannol range includes solder wires with 1 flux core.

There are two groups of different activation levels to choose from: Halide containing and halide free fluxes for solder wires. The fluxes with higher activity usually contain halides. Stannol provides five halide containing solder wire fluxes which can be used in the electronics industry as No-Clean products.

Halide-free solder wire fluxes are used if halides are not permitted in the manufacturing process and if higher electrical safety of the residues is required. In comparison with the halide containing fluxes, these fluxes provide lower activity and require well solderable surfaces.

In addition to solder wires for electronics, Stannol also provides flux-cored solder wires with special fluxes which have been developed for hardly wettable surfaces. All residues are water soluble which makes the required cleaning easy.

(1) The micro-alloyed FLOWTIN solders have been developed by Stannol to achieve the lowest possible dissolution rate of copper and iron. Depending on the general conditions, an increase in the life time of soldering tips of up to 50% is possible.

(2) All ultra pure, lead-free standard alloys are designated as ECOLOY. Additional flux / alloy combinations are also possible, partially on a production-related minimun order quatity - please feel free to contact us!

In this chart the dependency of the flux activation level to the electrical safety of the flux residues is shown. The lower the flux activation level can be chosen, the higher the electrical safety of the flux residues after soldering can be expected. When using the activated flux Kristall 511 for example, high electrical safety can be achieved after soldering – as a No-Clean flux without a subsequent cleaning process

Stannol uses a unique colour code for easy differentiation between the different groups of solder wires. The colour code is based on two parts: The first part is the colour of the reel, the second part is the colour on the label. This ensures an easy error prevention in mixed manufacturing areas.
