- High-reliability soldering
- Automated soldering
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

It is important to consider both the solder alloy density and the diameter of the wire when determining the ideal flux percent. This blog post tells you what else you need to know.
Robotic Soldering II After reading my last post on robotic soldering, you have decided that you have a good robotic soldering application and want to get start...
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!
