Soldering Information

Soldering is the process of joining two components by heating up soldering wire until it melts, enabling it to be used like a kind of glue. Soldering wire is designed to melt at a low temperature so as to ensure minimal damage to the materials being joined. An essential process for electronics assembly and repair, soldering is also used to join metal pipes, though soldering irons and guns are rarely used for this application and the tool of choice is typically a blow torch.

Here's our Quick Application Guide:

Soldering Irons - soldering irons come in quite a few variants, from butane gas powered portable models to temperature controlled soldering stations to simple handheld tools attached to mains plugs. As such they are quite versatile but the majority are designed for precision electronics work, and are usually the best choice for circuit boards and smaller cable assemblies.
Soldering Guns - a Soldering Gun is designed to offer much quicker start up and cool down time than a typical soldering iron, while supplying a higher temperature too. This means it is ideal for jobs that require infrequent soldering and for joining larger components where a greater concentration of heat is required. However, it is not usually well suited to precision tasks.

Soldering Safety:

Due to the heat they produce, care should be taken when using soldering irons around flammable materials. Use a stand or rest to keep them safely out of the way in between uses and always remember to switch them off after you have finished.
