Nihon Superior Co. Ltd., a supplier of advanced soldering materials to the global market, announces that it has been awarded a Global Technology Award in the category of Environmentally Friendly Products/Services for its SN100C P602 Solder Paste. The award was presented to Tetsuro Nishimura, President of Nihon Superior, during a Tuesday, October 26, 2010 ceremony that took place during SMTA International at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando, FL.
SN100C P602 is completely halogen-free, which means there are no intentional halogens of F, Cl, Br or even I hidden in the chemistry. The SN100C alloy delivers a Silver-free stable microstructure in an alloy that can accommodate the long-term cyclic strains and impact strains to which a solder joint can be subjected.
The lead-free paste has smooth bright fillets with few shrinkage defects and a stable microstructure with minimal growth of the interfacial intermetallic, resulting in highly reliable solder joints. SN100C provides excellent printing and reflow in fine-pitch circuitry, low hot and cold slump, and good coalescence and wetting with no solder balls.
