Indium introduces high-reliability low-voiding flux coating for solder preforms
Indium Corp. introduces a new, high-reliability, low-voiding flux coating for solder preforms. LV1000 reduces false failures while increasing productivity, throughput yields, and component performance. This new halide-free (ROL0) material is especially suited for assembly processes in which the components don’t allow for proper outgassing of volatized flux.
LV1000 provides a durable, level, clear coating that does not clog pick and place equipment, even in automated assembly processes. It offers complete coverage, even with a weight percentage as low as 0.5%.
Flux coatings provide consistent, uniform amounts of flux every time, with excellent control over the flux volume/weight percentage. Indium Corporation flux-coated solder performs come in a variety of packaging and can be color coded. The company’s flux coatings are applied to the outside of the preform where the flux is required, rather than in the core.
