Recently I went shopping for more electrical components and on my list was solder wire. I bought one reel of solder wire from an indigenous company called Oswal. It is a 60/40 tin:lead solder wire. The thing that I did not notice was that the label said 'Resin Cored', Rosin cored I know but what is this resin cored solder wire? Googling for answers I found none which detailed it. I searched for Resin which is:
In polymer chemistry and materials science, resin is a "solid or highly viscous substance," which are typically convertible into polymers. Such viscous substances can be plant-derived or synthetic in origin. They are often mixtures of organic compounds.
Now I used this wire to solder a few things and it behaves just like a Rosin core solder wire. So my question: Is this resin core different from Rosin core or is it just a rebranded version? There is one place I found similar wire being sold, if it helps: Resin core solder wire
