Indium to Feature Ultra-Low Voiding Solder Paste at SMTAI 2017


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation will feature its ultra-low voiding Indium10.1HF solder paste—which helps customers avoid the void—at the SMTA International Technical Conference, to be held September 17–21, 2017, in Rosemont, Illinois.

Indium10.1HF is an air reflow, no-clean, halogen-free, Pb-free solder paste specifically formulated to achieve ultra-low voiding, especially in bottom termination component (BTC) assemblies.

The flux chemistry is specifically engineered to improve reliability with:

  • High ECM performance under low standoff components
  • Outstanding solder beading
  • Very low bridging, slump, and solder balling
  • Resistance to head-in-pillow
  • Excellent wetting to a variety of common fresh and aged metallizations and surface finishes
  • High print transfer efficiency with low variation

Indium10.1HF is compatible with lead-free alloys such as SnAgCu, SnAg, and other alloy systems favored by the electronics industry. This solder paste is halogen-free per IEC 61249-2-21, test method EN14582.

Creating the Perfect Solder Joint

11/03/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
From a visual standpoint, a good solder joint should be smooth, bright, shiny, clean, and have a nice concave solder fillet. But how do you ensure that inside those joints, good intermetallic bonds are formed? Solder joints play several different roles, and they represent several different opportunities to be a problem, a partial improvement, or a complete improvement. Since all solder joints aren’t created equal, the first step is to understand what is expected or required of that joint.

Achieving the Perfect Solder Joint: The Many Perspectives on Soldering

10/30/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
For this month's issue of SMT Magazine, we brought several experts together to discuss the many aspects of soldering, from solder paste, to automation, inspection, and the challenges in achieving the perfect solder joint. We also talked about the strategies and parameters to consider to ensure reliable, good solder joints.

X-Ray Inspection of Lead and Lead-Free Solder Joints

07/31/2017 | Glen Thomas, Ph.D., and Bill Cardoso, Ph.D., Creative Electron Inc.
As aerospace companies consider the shift to lead-free solder alloys and glues, concerns have been raised about whether their current X-ray inspection and quality-control procedures will still be valid. With lead solder, joints are easily interpreted by the operator or the system imaging software because lead provides excellent image contrasts due to relatively high X-ray absorption compared to that of PCB and component materials. Will this hold true as they shift to lead-free solder compounds?
