In view of the increasing interest in low temperature and lead‐free solder alloys, a review was made of existing information on the physical properties of bismuth alloys suitable for electronic bonding applications, by reflow and wave soldering. A comparison was made, where possible, with existing tin‐lead alloys already in widespread use, with new information experimentally derived where none was currently available.
