Kester Introduces EnviroMarkTM 919G Lead-Free Solder Paste Halogen-Free and No-Clean at Productronica 2007

Nov 01, 2007

ITASCA, IL � November 1, 2007 � Kester announces it will launch the new EnviroMark 919G (EM919G) lead-free solder paste in Hall A4, Stand 363 at the upcoming Productronica 2007 exhibition and conference, scheduled to take place November 13-16, 2007 at the Munich Trade Fair Center in Munich, Germany.

EM919G lead-free solder paste contains state-of-the-art advantages for high-reliability and low-defect assembly and solidifies Kester�s commitment to be the global benchmark in no-clean lead-free solder paste. EM919G is 100 percent halide- and halogen-free, representing a critical innovation in soldering materials chemistry.

Kester�s EM919G offers numerous advantages over other solder pastes such as ultra-low voiding characteristics, lighter flux residue color, shiny joints and excellent solderability on all typical component and board finishes, and easier residue penetration.

The lead-free paste also provides a net improvement over products currently available to the market today. Its excellent print characteristic to 0.4 mm pitch, stable tack and stencil life with long idle time between prints ensure a reduction in print defects and paste waste.

The enhanced chemistry in the flux provides the necessary cold and hot slump resistance that is essential in a lead-free reflow thermal profile. The improvements in chemistry reduce potential defects such as bridging, solder balls and tombstoning while delivering superior activity to ensure good solderability of all common lead-free finishes.

Kester�s booth will be the best source for lead-free information at Productronica. Kester will also feature numerous other products from its Lead-Free Solutions (products and services) portfolio to help companies achieve reliable lead-free. Among the products being featured will be low-cost Ultrapure K100LD lead-free bar and solder wire.

As always, Kester's global lead-free team of technical engineers will be present to answer all lead-free questions that companies may have about lead-free assembly. Be sure to stop by Hall A4, Stand 363 for more information.
