cold solder joint


joint in which the solder has a blocky, wrinkled or piled-up appearance and shows signs of improper flow or wetting action


  • NOTE It can appear either shiny or dull, but not granular. The joint normally has abrupt lines of demarcation rather than a smooth, continuing fillet between the solder and the surfaces being joined. These lines are caused by either insufficient application of heat or the failure of an area of the surfaces being joined to reach soldering temperature
