Reading time ( words)

AIM Solder is pleased to announce its commitment and partnership with Alfatec and the Brazilian market. David Suraski, executive vice president, and Franics Lapierre, vice president, Operations & Administration, visited Brazil last week to affirm that this is an important market to AIM Solder and the company looks forward to nuturing its existing relationships, and building new ones in the future.

Over the past several years, AIM has expanded its presence and support network in Brazil. In 2016, AIM announced the addition of Alfatec Indústria e Comércio Ltda as a licensed manufacturer to meet the growing demand for AIM solder materials within the Brazilian market. Today, locally produced AIM solder paste liquid flux, bar solder, and cored and solid wire solders are available throughout Brazil.  Additionally, customers rely on AIM's local sales and technical support teams in Sao Paulo and Manaus to support them in achieving their manufacturing goals.

AIM also distributes its innovative high reliability, lead-free alloys, REL61 and REL22 in Brazil. REL61 addresses the most challenging issues with today’s common lead-free alloys, specifically voiding, cost, durability and tin whiskers. REL22 has been specifically engineered as an easily processed, exceptionally durable alloy for extreme service environments.
