Dear Mr Mukesh Vyas,

You have answered most of your questions yourself and its a pretty good job ! You may want to add on the post plating rinses and neutralization steps; its the residual Tin Plating brightener on the surface that is the cause of most solder-ability and post plating discoloration problems.

I will look forward to seeing your complete revised trouble shooting chart with these included soon !
