AIM Solder Brings New Low-Cost Lead-Free Solder Paste and VOC-Free Liquid Flux to Productronica

CRANSTON, RHODE ISLAND, U.S.A.  ― AIM Solder, a leading global manufacturer of assembly materials for the electronics industry, announces that the company will highlight their two newly developed award-winning products, lead-free NC259 Solder Paste and VOC-free NC277 Liquid Flux, in Hall A2 Booth 540 at Productronica 2013, held November 12th – 15th in Munich, Germany.

AIM’s new halogen-free solder paste is a low cost lead-free solution that offers the performance of tin/lead and high-silver, lead-free solder pastes minimizing post-process residues and graping. NC259 is formulated to provide one of the longest pause-to-print windows in the industry, resulting in far less solder waste, fewer restart costs and improved overall print quality. Proven to mitigate head-in-pillow defects, NC259 reduces rework and rejected board costs allowing manufacturers to attain the SMT soldering results they require while paying significantly less per gram than with traditional lead-free solder pastes.

NC277 is a VOC-free liquid flux that is as electrically safe as an alcohol-based flux that is suitable for long thermal demands. This flux can withstand the high thermal preheats and provides a broad activation range, proving to be an excellent flux for a variety of process parameters and applications, including lead-free wave soldering with tin-silver-copper, tin-silver, tin-copper, and other alloys. In addition, NC277 offers medium post-process residues and has shown to reduce preventative maintenance requirements for spray fluxing applications.

Additionally, AIM will feature its liquid fluxes, tin/lead and lead-free alloys, including SN100C. SN100C is a lead-free solder alloy developed by Nihon Superior in Japan that is comprised of tin, copper, and a small amount of nickel + germanium.
