A. That's pretty vague and broad, Mr. Peru, and is probably best answered by a whole chapter or more in a book about soldering. But if you can provide specifics, I think it is likely that a reader can help you with the specific problem you are encountering. Thanks.

A. Hi, Vinod. I'm no soldering expert, but perhaps the most basic principle is that the components must not move during the critical second or so while the solder is cooling. Are you sure that the parts are firmly held in place rather than relying on the operator to hold them still?

If you're completely certain on that issue, there are large books written about soldering problems, so I won't pretend that your problem is necessarily solved easily.

Can atmospheric problems cause dry solder?

July 23, 2013

Q. Q. We are doing manual soldering of PVC insulated copper wires (0.20 mm CSA) on copper parts by preheating the copper base and using soldering iron with solder wire dia of 0.8 mm having Sn (60) / Pb (40) with flux content of 2.2%
We are recently facing a lot of dry solder issues in spite of strong process control and 100% manual pull test of wires after soldering. Is there any atmospheric effect on solder joint after soldering which can cause this issue?
