Coating with solder (solder plating). Solder coating of solder joints is often carried out in PCB production before the actual soldering takes place. The term pattern plating (tin plating of the conductor pattern) is used for this purpose. The alloy usually consists of tin with 10% lead content. Due to the environmental impact of lead, however, pure tin is often preferred lately.
