Solder paste is a material used in the manufacture of printed circuit boards to connect surface mount components to pads on the board. It is also possible to solder through hole pin in paste components by print solder paste in/over the holes.

Dear fellow process engineers,
Some solder joints "trough hole component" have cracked. I suspect that in the market some technician tried to straighten some components (LED) and has applied enough force to actually brake the joint. The joints were broken (lifted of the pad)in a nice round fashion which indicates mechanical force. The surface of the pad was still covered with solder.
I now have major arguments with our "star designers" which insist the flux (Multicore NRS-06 VOC free) is not doing his job. In other words the solder separates from the track. I argue that there is the intermetallic compound layer so therefore you can not seperate the solder from the copper unless there was no wetting, which is not the case.
Does anybody know where i can get some white papare on solder joint integrity.
