Indium Solder Paste Wins Mexico Technology Award


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation has won the Mexico Technology Award for its Indium10.1HF solder paste.

The Mexico Technology Awards, sponsored by Mexico EMS, recognizes the best electronics manufacturing innovations in the electronics manufacturing industry in Mexico produced by OEM manufacturing equipment and materials suppliers over the last year.

The awards are designed to promote best practices in technical innovation, manufacturing quality, and productivity by celebrating the companies and people achieving high standards and driving the industry forward.

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.

In addition to the ultra-low voiding, Indium10.1HF is engineered with a unique flux chemistry to improve reliability and address the challenges of the industry’s trend toward miniaturization, including:

  • High ECM performance under low standoff components, RF shields without proper ventilation, and components in low-clearance cavities
  • Solder beading minimization
  • Very low bridging, slump, and solder balling
  • Excellent wetting to a variety of common fresh and aged metallizations and surface finishes
  • High print transfer efficiency with low variation

Increased digitalization and greater connectivity have been driving miniaturization and more complex and integrated designs in electronics. As the real estate on PCBs shrinks, so does the size of packages. However, the drive for finding design solutions for increased performance has continued to expand. The solder joint is an essential part of assemblies for electronic devices as it provides electrical, thermal, and mechanical connections. Therefore, soldering materials have been evolving to enable such a technological revolution.
