  • Good solder, not RoHS

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    + Extremely cheap (in Russia it costs x3 more).

    + Has flux inside.

    + This flux is enoughly active for soldering electronic components but may be not enoughly active for soldering metal dishes.

    + 200 g will be enough for a long time for a home use.

    + It is NOT lead-free, it is NOT RoHS and it is GREAT (see "Other Thoughts").

    Cons:

    I can't think of any.

    OtherThoughts:

    RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) is a way for stealing money from a pocket of those people who use electronics. Restriction of using lead, for example, in a car makes me laugh because of a lead-acid battery which contains about 8-10 kg of lead.

    Also RoHS is a method to program a time to live for electronics for 10 years - after 10 years lead-free solders will recrystallize so you will have to resolder them. Remember about Robert Scott - recrystallization of tin without lead killed him and his people.

    This solder is NOT RoHS and it is great.

    Bottomline:

    Cheap and useful if a soldering iron is your second spoon. xD
