Contributing activity / technique for the environment
Name of activity / technique:
Lead-containing solders and low melting point alloys are used in various applications, including electrical and electronic circuits, plumbing, heat exchangers, stained glass and model making, among many others, and include both original manufacture and repair. The lead-containing alloys used in these applications range widely in composition and are eutectic mixtures that melt at temperatures lower than their constituents, the melting points being such that connections between components can be made without thermal damage to the items being joined. Connections are made using a variety of usually hand held means, such as soldering iron, gas (e.g. propane) torch or hot air gun. The components to be joined are heated to a point where solder will liquefy, wet the items to be bonded and then quickly solidify.
