The assembly division of MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions, a world leader in the production of electronics soldering and bonding materials, has introduced ALPHA® EF-2100, their latest VOC-free, zero-halogen liquid soldering flux designed to meet current REACH and RoHS legislation.
“ALPHA EF-2100 shows stable performance compared to EF-2210, Alpha’s leading VOC-free flux,” said Bernice Chung, Global Portfolio Manager for Wave Solder Assembly Solutions. “The solderability of this product has shown to be equivalent in hole-fill, solder balling and bridging while providing good lead-free solder joint cosmetics with an evenly spread, tack-free residue.”
This Tetraglyme-free flux contains zero rosin, low solids, no-clean chemistry and is Bellcore and SIR compliant. ALPHA EF-2100 is a drop in replacement for users of EF-2210, EF-2202, WB-400 & NR-300 who wish to use a non-toxic product.
