The minimum melting point of a combination of two or more materials. The eutectic temperature of an alloy is always lower than the melting point of any of its individual constituents. The eutectic temperature is the particular temperature at which the eutectic occurs. Eutectic alloys, when heated, transform directly from a solid to a liquid and do not show any pasty regions. For example, eutectic solder paste has a composition of 63% tin (Sn) and 37% lead (Pb), and has a eutectic temperature of 183°C.
