Indium Corporation will feature its void-reducing Indium8.9HF Solder Paste Series to help customers avoid the void at productronica 2017, which will be held on November 14–17, in Munich, Germany.
The Indium8.9HF Series delivers no-clean, halogen-free solder paste solutions designed to produce low-voiding–plus improved stability–during the printing process. Under optimal process conditions, this series:
- demonstrates consistent printing performance for up to 12 months when refrigerated;
- maintains excellent printing and reflow performance after remaining at room temperature for one month; and,
- delivers excellent response-to-pause even after being left on the stencil for 60 hours.
The Indium8.9HF Solder Paste Series boasts a unique oxidation barrier technology that makes these pastes perfectly suited for a variety of applications, especially automotive assembly.

Whether in production, or repair and rework, the cost of soldering iron tips can be easily overlooked, but with today’s requirement for higher temperatures in lead-free solder applications, the consumption of tips has dramatically increased. This fact, combined with changes in tip design to meet the higher thermal load requirements, has also resulted in escalating tip costs, making tip care a high priority.
