Solid Core Wire
Most of our alloys are available as solid core (no flux in the center). The most popular diameters are between 0.010”/0.254mm and 0.062”/1.52mm; however, SnAg and AuSn alloys are available in diameters less than 0.010”/0.254mm.
Solid core wire is available in:
- Pure indium and indium-based alloys
- Bismuth-based alloys
- SAC alloys
- Pb-based alloys (including high Pb)
- Pb-free alloys
Flux-cored wire is generally used for manual soldering or rework. It contains the flux in the center to facilitate the soldering process and eliminate the need for a separate flux. A variety of flux cores are available including no-clean, water-soluble, and halogen-free. Flux-cored wire is also used for soldering processes that do not involve electronics. Typical alloys for flux-cored wire include:
- SAC alloys
- Other Pb-free alloys such as SnAg, SnCu, and SnSb
- Alloys containing less than 20% bismuth
- Pb-containing alloys including SnPb and SnPbAg
- High Pb-based alloys

I found this to be a good introduction to the fundamentals of hand soldering - and I think you will too. Please pass this along to the creative people you know that may want to learn how to solder!
Gold-based solder alloys have superior strength and conductivity; perfect for applications requiring a high temperature, reliable bond that can hold up to extreme environments.
Generally in the world of solder, once a solder preform or section of wire is reflowed it has been consumed and there is not any need to consider what to do with the leftover material. There is no need to consider a reclaim or recycle process. But there are, of course,...
