Resistance to soldering heat
A large number of electronic components are temperature sensitive, and may only be heated for a limited time period up to a certain temperature. If the maximum permissible temperature for a component has been exceeded in a soldering process, it is possible that the component has been damaged. In the worst case, it is only an initial damage, and the component will fail at a later time in the field. Some common standards defining the heat resistance capacity of components are, for example, ECA/IPC/JEDEC J-STD-075 or J-STD-020E.
