AIM, a leading global manufacturer of solder assembly materials for electronics assembly, PC fabrication, component manufacturing and other industries, announces that its NC275LR VOC-free flux meets the new SIR requirements.
Karl Seelig, Vice President of Technology, commented, “NC275LR is really leading-edge technology for VOC-free fluxes. The flux eliminates volatile organic compounds and meets the newest SIR and corrosion testing requirements. Assemblers now can have a high degree of confidence in an environmentally-friendly product that yields the highest electrical resistance.”
NC275LR is a water-based, halide-free, no-clean liquid flux formulated to offer low residue and excellent wetting for lead-free and tin-lead wave soldering applications. The new liquid flux passes the new SIR requirements under the IPC J-STD-004B test method 188.8.131.52 at process temperature and when air dried.
NC275LR offers extremely low post-process residues resulting in better aesthetics as well as improved first pass in-circuit testing and a reduced need to clean pallets and conveyors. NC275LR also has proven to reduce preventive maintenance requirements for spray fluxing applications.
Offering a broad activation range, NC275LR has proven 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. The flux features excellent performance even in extended dwell times. Additionally, NC275LR offers low-fuming and fast solvent evaporation. NC275LR is compatible with a broad range of tin-lead and lead-free alloys and is available in a variety of packaging.
