Alpha to Feature No-Clean, Lead-Free Touch-Up Kit at SMTAI


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions is going to feature its no-clean, lead-free material set combination for touch-up operations at the SMTA International exhibition, taking place September 27th-28th in Rosemont, Illinois.

The touch-up kit, featuring ALPHA® paste, tacky flux, cored wire and wave soldering flux, includes specific products that in combination, offer the highest possible level of reliability based on completed SIR Combo testing.  All combinations were tested to IPC TM650 2.6.3.7/J-STD 004B with the conditions as 40°C at 90% RH with 12.5 volt bias applied every 20 minutes.

“The right combination of these materials is a critical aspect to producing high-performing products that will meet stringent specifications”, said Robert Wallace, Regional Marketing Manager at Alpha Assembly Solutions, part of the MacDermid Performance Solutions group of businesses. “By providing customers with a tried and true touch-up kit we are eliminating the guesswork on their end, increasing time-to-market and potentially reducing warranty claims and returns by a significant margin.”

Located at Booth #723, Alpha will showcase their innovative materials and solutions for the electronics assembly industry with particular focus on ALPHA® Paste & Preforms for optimized process solutions and ALPHA Wave Solder Alloy & Chemistries and Cored Solder Wire for optimal performance.  ALPHA® Recycling Services will also be highlighted at the show this year to help customers realize their options for responsibly disposing of solder dross and waste.

High-reliability, Low-temperature Solder Alloys

05/18/2020 | Dr. Pritha Choudhury, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
Increased digitalization and greater connectivity have been driving miniaturization and more complex and integrated designs in electronics. As the real estate on PCBs shrinks, so does the size of packages. However, the drive for finding design solutions for increased performance has continued to expand. The solder joint is an essential part of assemblies for electronic devices as it provides electrical, thermal, and mechanical connections. Therefore, soldering materials have been evolving to enable such a technological revolution.
