Indium Launches No-Clean Flux for Reflow, Hand Soldering


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation has released a new halogen-free, no-clean ROL0 flux specifically developed for PCB assembly hand soldering and rework applications.

TACFlux 020B-RC passes SIR testing in the unreflowed state. Oftentimes during hand soldering and rework, the flux may not be heated properly due to spot heating methods, thus the flux is not adequately activated. TACFlux 020B-RC is designed to solve this problem and avoid reliability concerns such as dendritic growth over time.

TACFlux 020B-RC joins Indium Corporation’s versatile offering of specialty fluxes designed to provide solutions for current and evolving industry challenges. Benefits of TACFlux 020B-RC include:

  • Passes J-STD-004B SIR testing in the unreflowed state
  • Halogen-free per IEC 61249-2-21 test method EN14582
  • Outstanding wetting performance on difficult to solder metallizations
  • Designed for no-clean applications, but flux can be removed using a commercially-available flux-cleaner

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.
