Solder Analytics

Our DKL Metals in-house laboratory offers a bath analysis programme. This is particularly important with lead-free alloys, as the monitoring of copper and lead levels is critical to a smooth running and controlled process.

We know solder can become contaminated with other metals that are dissolved during the soldering process. The impurities collected throughout this process can affect the physical characteristics & ability of the solder. We can test your samples at our in-house laboratory, once analysed, your results will be delivered.

Routine samples must be prepared with the DKL Metals sampling kit. Please contact us if you are interested in this service and a sampling kit will be sent out to you. You will then have to prepare the sample correctly and follow the enclosed instructions to ensure your analysis figures are true and not misleading.

If you have any questions regarding your analysis, please get in touch on 01506 847710 or email
