Abstract

Current crystal insulator designs, while serving the purpose of protecting components horn solder flow, have prevented optimum performance during lead-through- hole solder wetting. These insulators tend to trap gases within the plated-through-hole, therefore preventing sol- der from properly wetting the component lead and hole wall. This entrapment subsequently results in insutkiently soldered and unsoldered components.
