Reading time ( words)

Cobar Solder Products Inc. part of the Balver Zinn Group announces that it will exhibit together with Amerway Inc. in Booth #2502 at the IPC APEX EXPO, scheduled to take place February 27 – March 1, 2018 at the San Diego Convention Center, California.

Representatives from Cobar will present Cobar’s wide range of fluxes:

Cobar 390-RX-HT is an alcohol based No-Clean flux for wave soldering applications under (partly) N2 atmosphere. This flux offers highest ionic and optical cleanliness and provides outstanding soldering results for use in high-tech and industrial applications.

Cobar 390-RO-HT is a high-end, Rosin based flux technology for wave soldering. The Cobar 390-RO-HT is a modified version of the high reliable 390-RX-HT flux and is ROL0 classified according to IPC standards, J-STD-004. The residues of this no-clean formulation are dry and shiny and can be removed easy if required.

Cobar’s SEL fluxes are specially designed for selective soldering to offer the highest reliable post soldering residues. Cobar 88-SEL is designed to eliminate soldering balling in selective soldering processes, such as between connector pins. The formulation that features a solid content of 6,7% is Rosin based and classified as ROL0 according to IPC standard J-STD-004. Cobar 88-SEL flux leaves a very low level of shiny, dry residues and offers perfect reliability for high-end and automotive applications.

Cobar 327-SEL is a VOC No-Clean flux for selective soldering applications. This flux offers outstanding soldering performance and high reliability post soldering residues. 

Also on display at the IPC Apex Expo show will be Balver Zinn Brilliant B2012, a halide-free No-Clean solder wire formulation ideal for all kinds of soldering applications such rework, manual, robotic and touch-up applications. B2012 exhibits a low level of bright and clear residues. B2012 shows very good wetting and flow ability.

Balver Zinn B2012 solder wire is available in the lead-free alloys SN100C® and SAC305 (SN97C) in various diameters from 0,3mm to 2,5mm with a standard flux content of 2,2%.

The complete range of SN100C products will also be presented at IPC Apex. The SN100C® alloy is manufactured under Balver Zinn license in America by Amerway Inc. 

Balver Zinn and Cobar offer solder bar, solder wire, solder flux, gel flux, cleaner and solder paste. For more information about the company’s complete range of solder materials, click here.

Under the Hood: Solder Joint Reliability

05/21/2018 | Burton Carpenter, NXP Semiconductors Inc.
It has been long established that packages using NSMD BGA pads were more resilient than ones with SMD pads to fatigue-induced solder joint cracks. However, NSMD pads in previous investigations on 292MAPBGA and 416PBGA packages failed sooner in AATS testing due to an alternate failure mode: substrate Cu trace cracks. This article looks into the effects of substrate material and package pad design on solder joint reliability of 0.8 mm pitch BGA.
