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

Tips & Tricks: Water Contamination and Flux Expiry

04/17/2019 | Jason Fullerton, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
Solder joints that form properly are not expected to exhibit reduced reliability. However, a higher number of defects created tends to lead to a higher chance that defective connections escape detection through inspection and functional testing, and that’s not a risk to be taken lightly.

Tips & Tricks: Humidity Level for Electronics Assembly

Low relative humidity (RH) can allow for higher static charges to build on objects. It can also affect solder pastes, especially OR-class pastes, and this can reduce print performance and stencil life. Read on to find out what level of RH you need for your assembly facility.

IPC Working to Revive Lead-Free R&D in High-Reliability Sectors
