In our latest application note, the O736 for oxygen determination was used to measure the amount of oxygen present in tin and lead-based solder powders. This is important to determine, as it is one of the primary quality control procedures for the electronics industry—the amount of oxides can detrimentally effect the soldering process, which reduces the amount and value of the metal.
