Indium Corporation Earns Mexico Technology Award for Spatter Control Flux-Cored Wire


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation has earned a Mexico Technology Award for its fast wetting, no-clean cored wire with spatter control technology, CW-818. The award was presented on Wednesday, Sept. 21 at the SMTA Guadalajara Expo and Tech Forum hosted at the Hilton Guadalajara in Jalisco, Mexico.

“At Indium Corporation, we believe that materials science can change the world,” said Robert McKerrow, Senior Product Specialist – Flux-Cored Wire, Wave Solder Flux, and Bar Solder. “We are honored to receive the Mexico Technology Award for CW-818 as it provides further proof that our products are continuing to make an indelible mark on the industry.”

The Mexico Technology Awards are presented by Mexico EMS and recognize the very best new innovations in the printed circuit assembly and packaging industries during the past year.

Indium Corporation’s CW-818 is designed to meet the demanding requirements of today’s manual and robotic soldering processes. CW-818 provides fast wetting speeds, allowing users to minimize cycle times. The spatter control technology minimizes flux spattering while the heat-resistant nature of the formula reduces flux build-up on the soldering iron tip, and also leaves a clear, non-tacky residue post-soldering (even when using a high iron tip temperature). The combination of superior soldering performance, improved overall cleanliness, and excellent visual appearance post-soldering delivers a truly no-clean flux-cored wire.

Indium Corporation’s extensive manufacturing process control ensures that CW-818 cored wire provides precisely the right amount of solder while minimizing process setup challenges and maximizing yields. CW-818 is void-free, and with consistent diameter and layer winding, prevents stoppages due to lack of flux or kinks when drawn into a robotic soldering machine. The result is an extremely reliable and strong solder joint.
