Reading time ( words)

SMART Group, Europe's largest technical trade association focusing on surface mount and related technologies, announces the release of its latest color guide, "Conformal Coating & Cleaning Defect Guide 2".

The new guide is free of charge to the industry and provides examples of the most common process defects and common cures. The guide was supported by Humiseal & Electrolube and SMART Group committee appreciates their ongoing support.

The guide also features many of the common as well as less obvious defects seen during production, including those associated with components, printed circuit boards, design, materials, assembly and rework. It also includes some of the issues that are seen on field returns.

SMART Group's first Lead-Free Defect Guide was produced in 2007 and updated in 2008, and was circulated worldwide with more than 1,000 free downloads. The original guide also was provided to engineers to download free.

Since 2006 and the implementation of the RoHS directive, the interest in bismuth-tin solder alloys—whose melting point around 140°C is very desirable because it allows for the use of lower temperature laminate materials and reduces thermal stress on sensitive components—has only increased as the industry has searched for Pb-free alternatives to the chosen standard, SAC305, which melts at considerably higher temperatures than the incumbent tin-lead alloys.
