Zine migration

I am an electronic engineer and puzzled by "metal migration" problem on component leads coating. it is highly appreciated if any one can give me some idea on the following phenomenon:
The lead is copper alloy and coated with tin-lead plating. After a high temperature (~60 - 80C) process for hours, the solderability decreases due to zine migration from the alloy to the surface.
Here is my questions:
1. Does the decrease in solderability be caused by zine migration? Or do those metals can be migrated so easy?
2. Does the "high temperature", only 60 - 80C for several hours, cause such metal migration? Or other reason?
Thank you in advance if any anybody can help.
