Umut Tosun, Application Technology Manager at ZESTRON, the globally leading provider of high precision cleaning products and services, will present “Maintaining OSP Coating Integrity During the Cleaning Process” at the International Conference on Soldering and Reliability in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The presentation is scheduled for Wednesday, May 16, 2012, at 2:00 pm at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Toronto Airport.
Organic Solderability Preservatives (OSP’s) have become prevalent in the electronics industry as an alternative to the HASL process. Even though this is a reliable surface finish method, care must be taken during the SMT process to minimize surface thickness degradation, particularly due to reflow and cleaning.
Within this presentation, Mr. Tosun explores the main factors affecting an OSP layer, including reflow and cleaning. He will provide detailed information and empirical data regarding the effect of chemically assisted cleaning on OSP film thickness, quantify the impact of key variables and highlight how to optimize the cleaning process in order to maintain OSP integrity.
