What is solder?

Solder is an alloy, typically consisting of tin, used in electronics and metalworking. It is used to join electronic components to circuit boards or to connect metal parts together.

Solder is typically sold as wire, in rods, in blocks, or as part of a solder paste. The alloy typically also contains small amounts of other metals, such as lead, copper, silver, or antimony, to improve its melting temperature and flow properties.

During soldering, the solder is applied to the parts to be joined by heating it with a soldering iron, soldering gun, or in a soldering station. When heated, the solder melts and flows around the joint to create a strong, durable connection. After cooling, the solder solidifies and forms a solid bond between the parts.

It is important to note that some solder alloys can contain lead, which is considered to be a health hazard. In many countries, therefore, there are laws and regulations that restrict or prohibit the use of lead in solder alloys.

What are soft solders?

Soft solders are solders that melt at relatively low temperatures and are primarily used to join metal parts. Soft solders consist of an alloy that mostly consists of tin, lead, and sometimes other metals such as copper or antimony. In contrast, hard solders, which melt at higher temperatures, have a higher strength and are primarily used to join metals with higher melting points.

Soft solders are available in various forms, such as wire or flux core, and are suitable for soldering copper, brass, tin, and other soft metals. The melting temperature of soft solders is typically between 90 and 400 °C.

Soft solders are often used in the electronics, plumbing, and HVAC industries to join components and pipes together. However, it is important to note that soft solders that contain lead are regulated or even banned in some countries due to their potential health risks. In these cases, tin-based solders that contain no lead are used as a substitute.

In order to always offer you fair prices, they are based on the current metal and foreign exchange rates. We are also happy to support you in securing your material needs on the international commodity markets. Please select the desired area of application for detailed information on our products.

White metal and tin alloys, lead alloys, Tin sheet, and more in various shapes and quantities.

The c:met GmbH was founded in 2007 as a young company with a focus on trading tin and lead alloys. As a customer, you can rely on the many years of experience and in-depth metallurgical knowledge of our employees. In our production facility, which is certified according to the latest quality standards, we have access to state-of-the-art manufacturing processes and analytical methods. We offer the metal to you as a raw material as well as further processed as semi-finished products in various delivery forms. We look forward to your inquiries and invite you to test our performance! c:met – your specialist in the trade of tin and lead products.

White metal - tin-based and lead-based bearing metals.

We offer both tin-based white metals and lead-based bearing metals according to common international standards such as EN ISO 4381, ASTM, AFNOR, BS, UNI, etc. or manufacture them according to your own specifications. We supply white metal alloys in delivery forms tailored to your production processes, whether it is centrifugal casting, static casting, or even soldering for bearing repair.

Tin sheet in two different, lead-free qualities.

As soft pure tin with at least 99.9% Sn or as a harder pewter alloy with the composition Sn95Sb4Cu1. Our Tin sheet is lead-free with Pb max. 0.04% and is used, among other things, in medical technology, as a filter in radiation technology, in organ building, or as an elegant surface for bar counters and countertops. Due to its low melting point and easy workability, the possible applications of Tin sheet are very diverse.
