Alpha Assembly Solutions Launches New Liquid Flux Selector Tool


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions has launched a new, web-based tool that allows users to find the most suitable flux for wave soldering, selective soldering or photovoltaic applications.

The tool is accessible through AlphaAssembly.com located under “Site Tools” and can be utilized based on alloys, application method, process and electrical requirements and even preferred flux solvent. Additional parameters can also be selected to further refine search results that align with your electronics manufacturing process.

“Alpha offers state-of-the-art and comprehensive flux selections for electronics assembly and is one of the first companies who introduces thick board flux and halogen-free flux that offers high reliability and excellent soldering performance for the critical wave soldering process”, said Bernice Chung, Global Portfolio Manager for Wave Soldering at Alpha, a part of the MacDermid Performance Solutions group of businesses. “Flux plays a critical role in the circuit assembly process and it is essential for manufacturers to pair the right solder with the right flux to maintain the integrity of any soldered connection and ensure the production of high quality boards. This new selector tool was developed with that in mind so customers could consider all necessary factors to pair the right flux with the right temperature to drive the lowest total cost of ownership by increasing yield and throughput.”
