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

New cored wire video made for social media viewing.
Robert share a good video which provides some good tips on soldering with flux-cored wire.
Spatter matters when it comes to manual and robotic soldering. You can avoid spatter-related soldering problems.
