Indium Features New Fluxes at productronica China


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation will feature its new Flip-Chip Flux WS-446HF and Ball Attach Flux WS-823 at productronica China, March 20-22, in Shanghai, China.

Indium Corporation’s WS-446HF is a water-soluble, halogen-free, flip-chip dipping flux with an activator system powerful enough to promote good wetting on the most demanding surfaces - including solder-on-pad (SoP), Cu-OSP, ENIG, embedded trace substrates (ETS), and flip-chip on leadframe applications. WS-446HF provides:

  • Excellent solderability to reduce open joints
  • Tackiness suitable for holding large die in place during assembly and reducing die tilt
  • Chemistry that eliminates dendrite issues
  • Reduced voiding
  • Good cleanability

WS-823 is a water-soluble, halogen-free, ball-attach flux designed for use in pin transfer and printing applications for ball attachment to both substrates (BGA manufacturing) and wafers for WLP (wafer-level packaging). WS-823 offers:

  • Excellent solderability on some of the most demanding substrate metallizations, such as copper OSP
  • Lower process costs and warpage due to the elimination of “pre-fluxing”
  • Consistent flux deposition
  • Good tack during heating combined with fast soldering eliminates missing ball
  • Low-cost simplified cleaning

Both WS-446HF and WS-823 are cleanable with just DI water only.

High-reliability, Low-temperature Solder Alloys

05/18/2020 | Dr. Pritha Choudhury, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
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.
