Soldering wire is made with conductive combination of metals with a low melting point. The formula of the two metals determine the melting point of the soldering wire. Soldering wire in Sri Lanka is commonly used for electrically connecting components together such as soldering copper wires together. Since there are various electronics and electrical parts a wide range of solder is available to produce optimal connections for each circuits and electronic parts. Soldering lead wires in Sri Lanka is used in electronic assemblies, electrical works, metalwork, DIY projects and automotive works, etc.
Standard composition for soldering wire in Sri Lanka is 63% tin and 37% lead ratio or 60% tin and 40% lead ratio. If special electronic components requires of removal of lead from the solder due to lead been toxic, other metal would be substituted for the lead. Lead free soldering wire use silver instead of lead in various compositions.
Soldering wires with above composition melt in a range from 361 to 421 degrees. If the lead percentage is higher in a soldering wire the higher the melting point. The best solder for electronics is lead solder, because it tends to be a little easier to work with its lower melting point. Lead is hazardous to human health and environment as a result lead free solder is becoming more common supported by updated industry regulations.
Where can we buy solder wire?
