Raw Materials Pressure Solder Surcharges

(April 5, 2007) JERSEY CITY, NJ; CLINTON, NY; ITASCA, IL &#151 Major solder companies are adjusting prices on tin-bearing solders, following reports that 2007 tin consumption would greatly outrun available raw tin supply. Mining and production shortfalls in Bolivia and Indonesia drove the market shift, and solder companies will roll out price adjustments as temporary or tiered increases. The surcharges are expected to last for the majority of 2007.
