AIM Introduces New CX18 and RX18 No Clean Cored Wire Solder


Reading time ( words)

AIM Solder has announce the introduction of CX18 and RX18 no clean cored wire solders, designed to offer excellent soldering results with all lead-free alloys and on all surface finishes.

Engineered for high operator satisfaction, CX18 is a low odor/smoke formula which promotes thermal transfer and fast wetting without the need for additional flux. RX18 was developed for automated soldering and provides rapid solder penetration into plated through holes or surface mount interconnections and its specialized packaging ensures consistent, accurate, jam-free wire feeding. Leaving minimal, clear post solder residues, these products pass J-STD-004A and J-STD-004B SIR and corrosion requirements and do not require cleaning. 

Additionally, RX18 was awarded Circuits Assembly’s 2019 New Product Introduction (NPI) Award during the IPC Apex Expo. Selected by an independent panel of industry experts, the winners were selected based on creativity & innovation, compatibility with existing technology, cost effectiveness, expected reliability, performance, and more.

This recognition confirms AIM’s commitment to developing state-of-the-art products to address current industry needs as well as emerging technologies.

Solder in PCBA: Can’t Live Without It... or Can We?

02/17/2020 | Joe Fjelstad, Verdant Electronics
For most of its historical use in electronics, the solder alloy of choice was tin-lead, either an Sn60/Pb40 alloy or the Sn63/ Pb37 eutectic version of the tin-lead alloy. These two alloys were the workhorses of the industry. They were both well understood in terms of their processing and reliability—that is, until the advent of lead-free, a well-meaning but ill-conceived and poorly executed conversion, forced on the industry by the European Union in 2006.

"The biggest challenge I’ve encountered a number of different times is the migration to much larger packaging," said Dr. Martin Anselm, director of CEMA Lab. "Devices are getting much larger, and with the thousands of I/O of solder joints, and they are not just single-die, multi-chip modules in different forms or 2.5D technologies.
