Indium Launches Water-Soluble, Halogen-Free Solder Paste


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation has released Indium6.6HF Solder Paste—a new water-soluble solder paste that is compatible with both SnPb and Pb-free alloys. Indium6.6HF is designed to provide exceptional stencil printing performance and minimize voiding in PCB assembly applications.

Indium6.6HF exhibits superior wetting to a variety of surface finishes resulting in the fewest voids, a reduction in the size of the largest voids, and minimized overall voiding.

Other Indium6.6HF benefits include:

 - Halogen-free per IEC 61249-2-21 test method EN14582

 - Exceptional printing process window:

  • High transfer efficiency
  • Long stencil life (up to 12 hours)
  • Excellent response-to-pause
  • Prints consistently at a wide range of speeds

 - High tack value (>8 hours) ensures consistent component holding power, allowing high-speed component placement operation

 - Cleanable up to at least 72 hours after reflow

Practical Implementation of Assembly Processes for Low Melting Point Solder Pastes (Part 2)

07/24/2019 | Adam Murling, Miloš Lazić, and Don Wood, Indium Corporation; and Martin Anselm, Rochester Institute of Technology
In the last three to five years, there has been a resurgence of interest in the use of low melting point alloys for SMT applications. Typically, the compositions are around the eutectic bismuth-tin alloy, perhaps with additions of other elements to increase the robustness of certain alloy properties. Now, there are several new products on the market and numerous ongoing reliability projects in industry consortia.
