RMA Solder Pastes | 21 January, 1999

I'm currently planning to do an evaluation of RMA flux solder pastes for mil type applications. Does anyone have any suggestions for vendors to try? I'm especailly interested in pastes that aid application on boards with 20 mil pitch.

I've had alot of success with the solder pastes from ESP in Rhode Island. They have great shelf life and are easy to print | I'm currently planning to do an evaluation of RMA flux solder pastes for mil type applications. Does anyone have any suggestions for vendors to try?

However, I recommend you pick several of the top solder paste vendors (Indium, Kester, Alpha) - all have good products - and test which material performs best in your process. Most will provide you with free samples for evaluation and have web sites that can provide a contact link. Before you get the samples, I recommend you determine which characteristics are most important to your process. Please email me with any questions.
