ALPHA Launches Ag-Free Cored Solder Wire for Rework and Touch-Up


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions is introducing its no-silver cored solder wire solution for highest wetting speed performance.

The ALPHA SnCX Plus 07 Ag-Free Cored Solder Wire is a fast-wetting solution with clear residue that is cost-effective for medium to lower end assemblies and is LED capable. It provides low-spatter and fumes and also has excellent soldering performance even at 370°C. 

“This alloy option creates a no-silver soldering value to customers as opposed to the higher costs that are associated with higher-Ag alloys”, said Bernice Chung, Global Product Manager for Cored Solder Wire at Alpha Assembly Solutions. “ALPHA SnCX Plus 07 ranks the highest for wetting speed performance against competitors and is an ideal choice for hand operators for rework and touch-up.”

This new Ag-free alloy is available with ALPHA Telecore HF-850 Cored Solder Wire in a variety of diameter sizes, in addition to other ALPHA Cored Solder Wire with flux systems, such as ALPHA XL-825 and ALPHA Pure Core.  For more information, please contact your local Alpha Sales Representative or visit our website.
