sol·der

(sod'ĕr),
1. A fusible alloy used to unite edges or surfaces of two pieces of metal of higher melting point; hard solders, usually containing gold or silver as their main constituent, are usually used in dentistry to connect noble metal alloys.
2. To join two pieces of metal with such an alloy.
[L. solido, to make solid, through Fr., various forms]

solder

[sod′ər]
Etymology: L, solidatio, making solid
1 n, a fusible metal or alloy used to unite pieces of metals with higher fusion temperatures.
2 v, to fasten together pieces of metal through the use of this material.

In contrast, mechanical stress does not play a role so that weakly adhesive peelable solder masks can be used.
Indeed, the draft Solders in Electronics report indicates that no metallic alternative to lead is free from environmental concerns.
NIST played a leadership role in this research project, chairing the Alloy Task Group and providing definitive, timely phase diagram data and critical analyses needed for evaluating candidate solders.

A single nozzle mounted on a solder pot and fountain travels around the underside of a PCB, soldering specific sites according to an individual sequential program created for that board.
The BGAs were received from the vendor with Pb-free solder balls and then reballed using Pb-free solder balls.
There are indications that the average thickness of LF solder is about 50% less than that of tin-lead solder, which means less solder is consumed.
