Unreviewed P2 Options
for the
Dip Soldering Process

Following are a set of P2 options you may wish to implement. No option is perfect for everyone, but sometimes options that have worked at one facility can work at yours. They might also serve as inspiration.

Unreviewed Options for Dip Soldering

Following are a list of options that have been submitted by users of the pollution prevention planner. They have not been reviewed by pollution prevention specialists.

These options are presented so you can see what people in facilities are considering. As with any option (reviewed or unreviewed) you will have to adapt it to your facility.


Conversion to alternative material

Converting solder operations to a non lead based solder. Commonly used solder in this industry is 70/30 tin lead solder. We have converted to a non lead zinc based solder. Currently used in approx. 60% of production with target of 100% within 3 years.

Recover solder dross

Solder dross can be skimmed off the surface of the solder pot daily and collected for shipment to a reputable metals recovery center.
