Everyone in the industry who operates a wave or selective solder machine produces solder dross for recycling. Solder dross is a layer of metal and impurities that collects on the surface of solder. It is a mix of oxidized metals and other impurities. It is leftover solder, and is made up of more than 90% metal. The rate of drossing depends on temperature, agitation, and alloy type. This metal can be refined and recycled into new solder bar.
