What is Solder Analysis?

DKL Metals Ltd was founded in 1986 as an independent manufacturer of tin/lead alloys. Since then, we have grown substantially and today we’re recognised as one of the UK’s leading suppliers of high purity solders and alloys while offering services such as solder waste recycling (dross recovery) and solder analysis. All our products are manufactured in accordance with national and international standards or customer proprietary specifications.

Solder Analysis

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 do this analysis programme as solder can become contaminated with other metals that are dissolved during the soldering process, sadly there isn’t a great deal manufacturers can do about this. The impurities collected throughout this process can affect the physical characteristics and ability of the solder. We can test your samples at our in-house laboratory, once analysed, your results will be delivered. All you need to do is contact us on 01506 847710 or on email at sales@dklmetals.co.uk and we will be sure to organise solder analysis for you.

As an alternative to sending solder to our team to analyse, we can send you a 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 need to prepare the sample correctly and follow the enclosed instructions to ensure your analysis figures are accurate and not misleading.
