MacDermid Alpha Launches Die Attach, Low-Temp and Adhesive Solutions at productronica China


Reading time ( words)

MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions will be exhibiting at the productronica China show to be held at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre in Shanghai from March 20-22.

MacDermid Alpha’s Assembly division will be highlighting silver sintering technology, low temperature technology and epoxy technology at the productronica China show. ¨ALPHA Argomax silver sinter products provide a dramatic reduction in thermal resistance and inductance as well as delivering an order of magnitude increase in reliability, 30x higher than traditional solder methods,“ said Julien Joguet, global business market manager, Die Attach at MacDermid Alpha. ¨The products also result in the lowest dollars per kilowatt for both silicon and wide bandgap devices with high voltages and high operating temperatures.“

“The ALPHA HRL1 alloy was designed to enable near-SAC305 drop shock and improved thermal cycling performance in low temperature assemblies”, said Phua Teo Leng, global portfolio manager for SMT Assembly Solutions at MacDermid Alpha. “This chemistry and alloy pairing is revolutionary as it reduces the soldering temperature required for SAC alloys by 50°C, while dramatically reducing power consumption and carbon emissions.  Assemblers can now benefit from having a cost efficient, highly reliable soldering process with up to 99% less warpage and significantly fewer defects, which is truly unique.”

For providing a full range of electronics assembly polymers products, Alpha acquired Hi-Tech Korea Co., Ltd, a premier electronics assembly polymer and epoxy-based materials supplier last year. “Alpha is now able to serve the global electronics assembly market with new product offerings of epoxy materials under the brand name ALPHA HiTech.” said Jimmy Shu, marketing director for the Assembly division in Asia-Pacific. These products are underfill, cornerfill, encapsulants, low temperature adhesives, UV adhesives and SMD adhesives for the mobile, camera modules, automotive, LED, consumer goods and industrial markets.

Semiconductor Division will focus on their complete line of formulations for semiconductor metallization, wafer interconnect and packaging, while Circuitry Division will focus on full portfolio of  PCB’s processes, including PTH and microvia metallization, copper electroplating, solderable finishes and flex circuitry, offering a comprehensive approach in the expertise development of chemical solutions forming printed circuit pathways.

Practical Implementation of Assembly Processes for Low Melting Point Solder Pastes (Part 1)

07/16/2019 | Adam Murling, Miloš Lazić, and Don Wood, Indium Corporation; and Martin Anselm, Rochester Institute of Technology
Since 2006 and the implementation of the RoHS directive, the interest in bismuth-tin solder alloys—whose melting point around 140°C is very desirable because it allows for the use of lower temperature laminate materials and reduces thermal stress on sensitive components—has only increased as the industry has searched for Pb-free alternatives to the chosen standard, SAC305, which melts at considerably higher temperatures than the incumbent tin-lead alloys.

Surface Treatment Enabling Low-Temperature Soldering to Aluminum

07/15/2019 | Divyakant Kadiwala, Averatek Corporation
An increasingly popular method to meet the need for lower cost circuitry is the use of aluminum on polyester (Al-PET) substrates. This material is gaining popularity and has found wide use in RFID tags, low-cost LED lighting, and other single-layer circuits. However, both aluminum and PET have their own constraints and require special processing to make finished circuits.

Failures and Reliability in Soldering

07/09/2019 | Michael Gouldsmith and Zen Lee, Thermaltronics
The definition of failure is "the lack of success in doing or achieving something, especially in relation to a particular activity." If the activity is concerning a soldering process, such a failure can have a downstream impact far beyond the actual solder joint. In this regard, it is first necessary to understand what constitutes a good solder joint because appearance is too often deemed a success.
