Indium Corporation announces that it is now offering CW-232, a uniquely formulated flux-cored wire that combines superior wetting speed and spread with extremely low-spatter performance.
Indium Corporation’s CW-232 is a highly activated rosin flux-cored wire developed to meet the demanding requirements of robotic and laser solder applications by delivering additional wetting power in order to achieve higher throughput. CW-232 also works exceptionally well in hand soldering applications. Due to its “no-spatter” technology, CW-232 eliminates flux spattering that can burn operators’ hands, impair the vision system of the robotic soldering machines, or make finished products less aesthetically appealing.
Indium Corporation’s CW-232 offers:
- Extremely low-spatter performance
- Very fast wetting, even capable of soldering to heavily tarnished surfaces
- Light-colored residue
- Compatible with Pb-free and SnPb alloys
- Compatible with HASL, Immersion Silver, ENIG, and OSP surface finishes
