Default Illegal solder

I been doing a electronic systems course at my college, and my teacher said that the solder I been using is illegal. Does anyone know anything about this, the solder I been using is Ersin Multicore 5 core solder which is 60% tin and 40% lead.

Default Re: Illegal solder

It is not illegal, but is not RoHS compliant either. This basically means that such solder cannot be used in consumer electronics meant for sale.

You can still legally use this solder for your own projects, as well as repair work and such.

The reason for its ban is concern with lead ending up in the environment, it does not pose a significant danger to you when you use the material, and it has been used as long as electronics exist. Ventilation has always been recommended and probably required when working with it profesionally, but that is required too when working with lead-free solders due to the fumes from the flux and such.

I prefer Tin/Lead solder, the lead free stuff just isn't the same, and with some ventilation the lead poses no threat anyway.

Default Re: Illegal solder

I hate the leadfree stuff myself too... its even annoying when you do repair work on boards that were made leadfree using proper leaded solder. It forms a mixture that doesnt have the straight-to-solid freezing eutectic lead/tin has.

Default Re: Illegal solder

yea. i personally don't like the lead-free stuff myself... but as long as the concern is there for the environment and whatever...

for any type of consumer type stuff, you gotta know how to deal with the crap anyway.

just be sure to keep lead-free things separate from leaded stuff. (soldering tools.. etc..)

Question Re: Illegal solder

Illegal, just cause they said no lead ..... bah ..... then, what i had to do with my remaining 9 and something Kg of 0,5mm soldering wire ? ..... throw it away just cause they don't like it ?

I also hate lead-free solder. My local electronics shop still sell huge rolls of lead/tin solder.

Though it'd not illegal. There is plenty more things out there that use more lead than solder.

The smell that some like and others detest is the rosin. Rosin is a derivative of pine tree sap and is also known as Colophony which was sometimes used as incense.

Default Re: Illegal solder

There is no need to stock up, ROHS does not apply to homebuild electronics, only to commercial goods rolling out of factories.

The stuff that stings your eyes and airways is from the flux, rosin-core being very common for electronics solder wire. Lead fumes wouldnt be all that noticeable, even in amounts that would give serious health hazards over time.
