Nihon Superior Co. Ltd., an advanced joining material supplier, is pleased to introduce its new SN100C logo. The logo replaces the originally used SN100C logo and will be used worldwide to brand this important alloy. The announcement was made during the recent IPC APEX EXPO in San Diego.
The three-ring logo has significance in its meaning for the representation of Sn-Cu-Ni, the fundamental composition of the SN100C solder alloy. Sn is represented by the red “S”, Ni by the blue “N”, and Cu by the black “C”. Tetsuro Nishimura, Nihon Superior’s president stated, “As one can see much vision went into developing the logo. It not only brands SN100C but also includes the infinity symbol which we want to represent our infinite wishes to continue to support our customers through the SN100C alloy.”
The company’s latest development is SN100CVTM P608 D4, a completely halogen free, lead-free, no-clean solder paste. Unlike silver-containing alloys that derive their strength from a dispersion of fine particles of eutectic Ag3Sn, SN100CV gains its strength from solute atoms in the tin matrix of the joint. The paste provides excellent wetting and reduces voiding.
Nihon Superior continues to offer solutions to the challenges facing the electronics industry, such as improvements in reliability, thermally stable joining, and lead-free die attach.

Nihon Superior was founded in 1966 when it began marketing unique flux products imported from the US. The company made its mark on society by gathering the most advanced soldering and brazing technologies and products from around the world, and supplying them to companies in the metal-joining industry. A turning point for the company came when it started developing its own soldering materials and with the success of its unique SN100C lead-free solder alloy Nihon Superior has become a major player in the global market. To support the growing demand for its products, Nihon Superior has established manufacturing and sales centers in Japan, China and other Asian countries, and the United States, and formed business partnerships with companies in other markets.
