Indium Boosts Flux-Cored Wire Capabilities


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation is now offering ultrafine flux-cored wire down to 0.006” (0.15mm) in diameter for standard Pb-free alloys.

Indium Corporation’s ultrafine flux-cored wire was developed to meet the progressively demanding requirements for increased solder joint density and miniaturization in applications where solder paste reflow and other soldering approaches are not effective, such as robotic soldering, fine-pitch component attachment, and hand soldering. Indium Corporation flux-cored wire offers:

  • Evenly wound layers onto the spools to avoid tangles during use
  • Consistent diameters that meet the most stringent requirements
  • No flux voids within the wire for consistent, worry-free soldering

Indium Corporation uses only “conflict-free” and grade A (per ASTM B32) metals, as well as other high-purity metals for its flux-cored wire. All materials have been tested and certified to meet IPC J-STD-004B and other relevant industry specifications, including the legacy military specification QQ-S-571F.

Featured flux vehicles for the 0.006” wire is Core 230-RC (REL1) and CW-808 (REL0). Both of these fluxes were developed for robotic soldering applications and contain Indium Corporation’s low-spatter technology.

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.
