About this product

Overview

  • A lead-free alloy solder containing a non-corrosive flux
  • Improved conductivity and flow
  • Lower melting point

Product overview

• A lead-free alloy solder containing a non-corrosive flux
• Improved conductivity and flow
• Lower melting point

This solder is 4% silver, 95.5% tin and 0.5% copper. We recommend this solder for use with the iron-clad and nickel-clad bits supplied with our soldering irons. Solder is 1mm diameter. The high silver content improves the conductivity of the solder and lowers the melting point, improving the flow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product! I had been working as a professional electronics development engineer all my career and now I am retired, electronics is my favorite hobby! When my large roll of 60/40 lead based solder ran out, I tried several lead free solders including N50aw but was always a little disappointed with the results. I bought a small amount of this solder (N51AW) and am very pleased with the results,with good flow, nicely formed shiny joints and will now use this solder with its silver content for all my future projects. I do a lot of prototyping using Veroboard and find that with a iron temperature set at 330 Deg C most components are soldered within 2-3 secs. and I have not had any problems with overheating anything including germanium diodes, Laser diodes, and many other heat sensitive components. I just wish they made it in 0.7mm gauge

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lead Free Solder is Different to use than Tin/Lead solder I had a small electronics project to do for my son (Assembling a Guitar Pedal Kit), and decided to do it 'properly' using Lead Free Solder. This meant that I was using solder that melted at temperatures of 30 degrees higher than normal. This was enough to make me nearly ruin the kit, through over heating components, and pushing my skill to its limit. It maybe would have been good sales practice to enquire if I realised this and as there were no safety requirements on the DIY'r, maybe still using my own Sn/Pb solder would have been OK

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Melts well and solders great Required solder with silver content to aid conductivity, though haven't found it any different than the normal lead free solder. Only disappointed that it wasn't pure silver but has its own issues eg melting point etc. Also the solder gauge is of the normal gauge rather then being fine which is not available from Maplin.

Can this product be used with a Cold Heat Pro Soldering Tool? If not which solder can be used?

Asked by: HJJM
On this occasion Maplin do not stock a product that exactly meets your requirements, or indeed anything close enough to offer you as an alternative.

Does this solder have much mechanical strength? I'm looking for something to join two pieces of brass so as to take the weigh of a wall clock glass

What temperature should I set my soldering iron at for this product?

Asked by: modelman
The melting point of 4%Ag, 95.5% Sn and 0.5% Cu is fixed at 217C. An iron at 200 or lower will not melt the solder.
