How to solve the problem of soldering iron tip not sticking to tin?

Posted Date: 2024-01-23

Due to different mechanical structures, functions, and uses, the main purpose of soldering irons is to weld components and wires. When we are soldering solder wire, we often encounter the phenomenon that the soldering iron tip does not stick to the tin. How to solve it?In fact, there are still many reasons for non-stick tin. We can only find these problems to solve them. The following is provided by JiajinyuanTin wire manufacturerLet me tell you how we should find the cause and solution if this happens:

Generally, there will be a phenomenon that the soldering iron tip does not stick to the tin. We should consider these factors:

1. Consider the quality of the soldering iron itself.

2. If the temperature is too high, the tin surface of the soldering iron tip will easily oxidize violently.

3. Do not tin the tin-dipped noodles before use.

4. Use incorrect or defective cleaning methods.

5. Use impure solder or the flux in the soldering wire is interrupted.

6. "Dry burning" of the soldering iron tip. If the soldering station is left open and not used, and there is no tin on the surface of the soldering iron tip, it will cause rapid oxidation of the soldering iron tip.

7. Contact with organic matter such as plastic, lubricating oil or other compounds.

In order to better solve this situation, we can use a knife to scrape off the oxidation layer of the soldering iron tip to expose the copper that has not been oxidized by air. Then, dip it in a rosin box, then dip it in tin, and it can be used normally. However, the removal by this method is not complete. At the same time, if it is scraped off for a long time, the soldering iron tip will become thinner, which will affect the heat transfer, cause the temperature to drop, and even damage the soldering iron tip.

Also, immerse the oxidized soldering iron tip in a container filled with alcohol. After taking it out for 1 to 2 minutes, the oxide will be completely and cleanly removed, and the soldering iron tip will look brand new, without corrosive effects on the soldering iron tip.
