Solder is used alongside soldering irons.
Particularly in securing electrical components to integrated circuit boards.
The solder melts easily when heated, and cools quickly.
Meaning it can be moulded to secure components in place in solder joints.
The quick setting nature of solder means it can also be used for light brazing.
Because of its relatively low melting point, solder can be reworked
easily by heating it to melting point and using a solder sucker to remove it.
Solder is commonly used with SMD and through-hole components,
with applications in repair, prototyping and production.
Unlike lead-free solder, lead solder does not have a shelf-life and is less
prone to losing quality after prolonged exposure to oxygen.
However, many electronic application requirements exclude the use of lead solder,
due to the toxicity of lead.
