Indium's State-of-the-Art Recycling Process Delivers Credit for Solder Pot Dross and Contaminated Solder


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation's new reclaim and recycle program is now offering customers credit for their solder pot dross and contaminated solder.

Returned solder, used in wave and other soldering processes, can be put through Indium Corporation's state-of-the art electrolytic recycling processes that removes both organic and metallic impurities from contaminated tin-lead and lead-free solder and solder dross.

Recycling materials not only saves costs from unnecessary waste disposal, but also allows the customer to earn a financial credit or exchange the recyclable material for new bar solder in a tolling arrangement – thus increasing the return on their investment.

Indium Corporation also offers reclaim and recycle programs for indium and indium alloys, germanium, and indium tin oxide (ITO) and indium gallium zinc oxide (IGZO) from sputtering targets.

Solder in PCBA: Can’t Live Without It... or Can We?

02/17/2020 | Joe Fjelstad, Verdant Electronics
For most of its historical use in electronics, the solder alloy of choice was tin-lead, either an Sn60/Pb40 alloy or the Sn63/ Pb37 eutectic version of the tin-lead alloy. These two alloys were the workhorses of the industry. They were both well understood in terms of their processing and reliability—that is, until the advent of lead-free, a well-meaning but ill-conceived and poorly executed conversion, forced on the industry by the European Union in 2006.
