Solder is the glue that holds our modern world together.
The trillions upon trillions of connected parts that we depend on for everything from transportation, information, entertainment, communication, and medicine—all of it—passes through solder.
Before 2006 when the European Union banned the use of lead in solder (thank you!), most connections were an amalgam of tin and lead.
Modern connections are lead-free, composed instead of tin, copper, and silver.
In our home music systems, every note we enjoy passes through hundreds of solder junctions.
Companies like PS Audio pay particular attention to the quality of those junctions, using more silver.
Sometimes it's the small things in life that matter most.
