New Test Method for Analysis of Tin-Based Solder Alloys for Minor and Trace Elements Using Inductively Coupled Plasma Atomic Emission Spectrometry

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: F40.01 | Committee F40 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers procedures for the analysis of tin-based solder alloys for minor and trace elements using inductively-coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES) instrumentation. 1.2 These test procedures were validated for the analytes and concentration ranges listed below. Some samples were diluted further in order to measure solution concentrations that remain within the range of the stated calibration standards. ElementValidated Conc.
