Title Environmental testing - Part 2: Tests - Test Te: Solderability testing of electronic components for surface mount technology by the wetting balance method
Project Number 6917
Abstract/Scope Describes two wetting balance methods. These methods determine quantitatively the solderability of terminations on surface mounted devices. The procedures describe the solder bath wetting balance method and the solder globuwetting balance method and are both applicable to components with metallic termination and metallized solder pads.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
