As part of the Bureau of Mines program to either conserve scarce domestic mineral resources or substitute for them, development of new soldering systems was undertaken. To support and facilitate this study, the properties of tin-lead solders were investigated. Surface tensions and densities of tin-lead solder alloys have been determined by use of an improved maximum-bubble-pressure system that includes provisions for density measurements. Results show general agreement with accepted theories for simple solutions. Comparisons with other reported measurements of these alloys are made.
