60/40

Tin-lead-antimony leaded solder for copper and most copper alloys, lead, high nickel alloys and steel. It is used for electronic or electrical applications. Its narrow melting range makes it ideal for dip soldering baths.

DETAILS

60/40 common lead-bearing solder has a wide melting range. It is similar to 50/50 but flows faster due to its narrow melting range. This solder can, with some exceptions, be used to join copper and most copper alloys, lead, nickel alloys and steel. It is not recommended for joints subject to high stress or vibration in the cooling industry due to lack of sufficient elongation properties. 60/40 is available in acid core, rosin core and solid wire versions.

Features

  • Can be used to solder copper and most copper alloys, lead, nickel alloys, and steel with some exceptions
  • Generally used for small connections
  • Its narrow melting range makes it suitable for dip soldering baths
  • Popular choice for soldering electrical and electronic connections
  • Heat sources include soldering guns, irons and air-fuel torches
  • Not recommended in high stress or vibration joints in the cooling industry due to lack of sufficient elongation properties
  • Do not use this product in plumbing or for potable water applications
  • Meets specification ASTM B32 Alloy Grade Sn 60; J-STD-006 Sn60Pb40Sb0.4

Typical Applications

  • Joining copper and most copper alloys
