NC162 is a third-generation liquid flux developed in response to the need for a high-activity halide-free no-clean alloy with superb solderability and minimal post-process residues, especially in palletized processes. NC162 works especially well with FCT Assembly�s SN100C Sn/Cu/Ni+Ge lead-free alloy, and is an excellent choice for soldering through-hole and mixed-technology assemblies.
NC162 has been formulated to provide the following benefits: halide-free, fully lead-free compatible, low post-process residues and excellent activity to promote hole fill. Additionally, the flux becomes more robust in high-temperature applications, and can be sprayed, foamed, or dipped.
About FCT Assembly
FCT Assembly was created after the purchase of Fine Line Stencil, Inc., and consists of two major operations: stencil manufacturing and the manufacturing of electronic assembly products such as solder paste, flux and solder (both conventional 63/37 and SN100C� lead-free) bar. The assembly products are manufactured in the Greeley, Colo. plant and the stencils are manufactured in the Beaverton, Ore., Memphis, Tenn., and Greeley, Colo. facilities. The stencils can be fabricated by both laser cutting and chemical etch. The company also makes precision parts in its A-Laser division, which is located in Beaverton, Ore.
