NT100Ge Bar Solder is produced using the same chemical composition as SN100C solder alloy marketed as SN100C® by Nihon Superior Sha Co., Ltd. and its licensees*, NT100Ge is a high-quality, low-cost alternative to silver-bearing solder. The eutectic tin-copper-nickel alloy creates a shiny, smooth, robust interconnect for a wide range of electronics assembly requirements. With a melting temperature of 441°F, NT100Ge is compatible with all wave and selective solder equipment. Similar to the effect of phosphorous in Sn63 alloys, the small addition of Germanium in NT100Ge serves as a de-oxidant, which keeps drossing to a minimum. For PCB fabrication applications such as the hot air solder leveling (HASL) process during which copper levels increase, NT100GeX provides a low-copper solder solution. NT100Ge can be used as a drop-in replacement for any existing 99C or SN100C solder bath, without the need for pot dumps or swaps. Once NT100Ge is in use, Nathan Trotter offers free, unlimited solder analysis to help maintain J-STD specifications and an optimal soldering process.NT100Ge is available as extruded 1 kg tri-bar, 7 lb. feeder bar, and solid wire on spools. Consistently smooth and shiny solder joint Low-cost, lead-free solder alloy (no silver content) Superior wetting and performance Minimal dross Eutectic properties create efficient melting and freezing• Operating temperature of 290°C - 320°C, similar to other lead-free soldersMain OfficeNathan Trotter & Co., Inc.241 W.

Nihon Superior Sha Co., Ltd. holds a separate patent for a solder joint (US8999519B2) with a distinct chemical composition, consisting of, among other things, either exactly .01% by weight Cu or 7.6% by weight Cu. NT100Ge has a certified copper content of .5-.7% which lies significantly outside the solder joint patent criteria. If there are concerns about the full scope of the US8999519B2 patent or solder joint composition, please consult an attorney.
