 A Guide to Lead-Free Soldering
 Environment-Friendly Electronics: Lead-Free Technology  Lead-Free Soldering

An electronic book
by Roger Bilham

A new electronic book, available now as a PDF by e-mail or on CD, is the new concise source for lead-free manufacturing.

Can you answer the following questions:

  • How will the European Directive banning the use of lead in electronic and electrical equipment impact your business?

  • Have you the knowledge and information you need to meet the regulations?

  • Do you know how to go about it, when you need to be lead-free and when you need to start preparing?

  • Would you like some simple and straightforward help?
A Guide to Lead-Free Soldering for Assemblers & Contractors will help your company prepare for lead-free ensuring your company is looking forward and ready for the future of electronics manufacturing.
