ASTM-B943 › Standard Specification for Zinc and Tin Alloy Wire Used in Thermal Spraying for Electronic Applications
Show Complete Document History
The following bibliographic material is provided to assist you with your purchasing decision:
This specification covers zinc and tin alloy wire, including zinc-aluminum, zinc-aluminum-copper, zinc-tin, zinc-tin-copper an dtin-zinc, used as thermal spray wire in the electronics industry. The wire shall conform to the required chemical composition for cadmium, zinc, tin, lead, antimony, copper, aluminum, bismuth, arsenic, iron, nickel, and magnesium. The wire shall be clean and free of corrosion, adhering foreign material, scale, seams, nicks, burrs, and other defects which would interfere with the operation of thermal spraying equipment. The wire shall uncoil readily and be free of bends or kinks that would prevent its passage through the thermal spray gun. Sampling methodology should ensure that the sample slected for testing is representative of the matreial. The diameter of the wire shall be determines at the end and the beginning of each continuous wire.

1.1 This specification covers zinc and tin alloy wire, including zinc-aluminum, zinc-aluminum-copper, zinc-tin, zinc-tin-copper and tin-zinc, used as thermal spray wire in the electronics industry.
1.1.1 Certain alloys specified in this standard are also used as solders for the purpose of joining together two or more metals at temperatures below their melting points, and for other purposes (as noted in ). Specification covers Zinc, Tin and Cadmium Base Alloys Used as Solders which are used primarily for the purpose of joining together two or more metals at temperatures below their melting points and for other purposes (as noted in the Annex part of Specification ). Specification covers Zinc and Zinc Alloy Wire for Thermal Spraying (Metallizing) used primarily for the corrosion protection of steel (as noted in the Annex part of Specification ).
1.1.2 Tin base alloys are included in this specification because their use in the electronics industry is similar to the use of certain zinc alloys but different than the major use of the tin and lead solder compositions specified in Specification .
1.1.3 These wire alloys have a nominal liquidus temperature not exceeding 850°F (455°C).
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to become familiar with all hazards including those identified in the appropriate Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for this product/material as provided by the manufacturer, to establish appropriate safety and health practices, and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
