FCT Assembly announces that Development Chemist Brittney Nolan will present during the Poster Sessions at SMTA International. The presentation, entitled “The Impacts of the Environment on the Printability of Solder Paste,” will take place Tuesday, September 30, 2014 from 12-2 p.m. in the Exhibit Hall at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL.

Solder paste is used in a variety of applications across the globe.  The performance of solder paste is crucial in the SMT process; therefore knowing how the environment affects the printing of paste is extremely valuable. It can be challenging for print operators to regulate the variability of working environments. The different environment variables that need to be regulated are temperature, humidity and type of solder paste. This study explores the performance of no-clean and water soluble pastes in environmental conditions such as elevated temperatures, decreased temperatures, and high and low relative humidity. The data gathered throughout this study consists of printed volume measurements with aperture sizes ranging from 0.35 – 0.80 area ratio. Tack force and slump was measured for each test condition.

During the completion of her undergraduate degree in Biochemistry at ACU & Baylor University, Nolan conducted research in organometallic chemistry. While working on building a polar carbon nanotube in use for studying catalytic processes, she successfully published three papers throughout her research in the Journal of Cluster Science as well as the Journal of Organometallic Chemistry. 


FCT Assembly consists of three divisions: FCT Solder, Fine Line Stencil and A-Laser. FCT Assembly is a leading and innovative manufacturer of lead-free and leaded solder products, superior quality stencils and precision laser-cut parts with multiple locations throughout North America.
