Investigating the Microstructural and Mechanical Properties of Pure Lead-Free Soldering Materials (SAC305 & SAC405)

Open access

Abstract

The Sn–Ag–Cu (SAC) solders with low Ag or Cu content have been identified as promising candidates to replace the traditional Sn–Pb solder. In this study, an extensive discussion was presented on two major area of mechanical properties and microstructural investigation of SAC305 and SAC405. In this chapter, we study the composition, mechanical properties of SAC solder alloys and microstructure were examined by optical microscope and SEM and mechanical properties such as tensile tests, hardness test and density test of the lead solder alloys were explored. SAC305 and SAC405 alloys with different Ag content and constant Cu content under investigation and compare the value of SAC305 and SAC405. From this investigation, it was reported that tensile strength is increased, with an increase of Ag content and hardness and density were also increases in the same manner.
