Lead-Free Terminals Add Reliability & Safety

Discover the next level of reliability and safety with our lead-free terminals. Engineered with precision, our terminals feature solder with enhanced surface tension, providing added strength and resilience against overheating. Unlike traditional solder, our lead-free solution ensures minimal running, maintaining integrity even under extreme conditions. Complementing this innovation, our translucent heat shrink is adhesive-lined and imprinted with gauge sizes, offering unparalleled ease of use and accuracy during installation. Furthermore, our heat shrink terminals boast exceptional corrosion resistance and waterproofing capabilities, ensuring long-lasting performance in diverse environments. Elevate your projects with our lead-free terminals, where durability meets peace of mind.

Types of Lead-Free Terminals

  1. Lead-Free Shrink & Solder Terminals varieties include butt connectors and ring terminals.

  2. Lead-Free Crimp, Shrink & Solder Terminals varieties include butt connectors, step-down butt connectors, ring terminals, and push-on terminals.

Top 3 Benefits of Using Lead-Free Terminals

  1. Solder used in the new lead-free terminals has a greater surface tension for added strength, and will not run as easily as traditional solder if overheated.
  2. Translucent heat shrink is adhesive-lined and printed with gauge sizes.
  3. Heat shrink terminals protect against corrosion and are waterproof.

Traditional Terminals vs. New Lead-Free Terminals

These terminals are very similar to our traditional shrink & solder terminals, with one very important difference: they use a newly developed solder that contains no lead or cadmium, and is RoHS compliant.  The new solder is not only safer and better for the environment, but it also provides improved performance.  It has a lower melt temperature and greater surface tension, which means it is stronger as well as less runny, so it is much less likely to run out of the tubing during installation.

What’s the new Lead-Free solder made of?

The new solder is a Tin & Bismuth alloy, and is stronger than the lead or cadmium solder alternatives. This innovative alloy not only eliminates the harmful effects of lead and cadmium but also surpasses them in terms of strength and durability. By combining the unique properties of tin and bismuth, our solder achieves exceptional performance, offering superior conductivity and mechanical integrity. Unlike traditional solder alternatives, our Tin & Bismuth alloy enhances the structural integrity of connections, ensuring reliable performance under various conditions.

What if I want to keep using the traditional solder terminals?

At Del City, you will be able to continue to find either option to fit the demands of your project. The lead-free versions have been added as an additional option, but we know having choices is important so we are keeping our existing terminal line for those who prefer the traditional product.
