FCT Solder and The Balver Zinn Group Win a 2008 EMAsia Innovation Award for SN100C Solder Alloy

Apr 09, 2008

GREELEY, CO � April 2008 � FCT Solder, a division of FCT Assembly, announces that it has been awarded a 2008 EMAsia Innovation Award in the category of Soldering Materials for the SN100C Paste. The award was presented to the company during an April 9, 2008 ceremony that took place at The Foyer outside the Grand Ballroom of the Shanghai Everbright International Hotel during Nepcon China 2008.

Initially developed for use in wave and selective soldering applications, SN100C� is also available as a Lead-Free HASL finish, solder paste, solid and cored wire, ribbon, pre-forms and spheres. SN100C� is quickly becoming known as the most reliable lead-free alloy in the industry and is outperforming competitive products in Japan, Asia, China, USA and Europe, with increasing numbers of leading manufacturers incorporating it into their processes.

SN100C� is the original patented Sn/Cu/Ni+Ge alloy. Inherent characteristics such as high fluidity, low copper erosion, low drossing, superior wetting and freedom from shrinkage defects along with more than eight years and billions of solder joints to its credit make it a low cost, high reliability lead-free solution.

Established in 2006, EM Asia Innovation Awards program strives to recognize and celebrate excellence in the Asian electronics industry, inspiring companies to achieve the highest standards and push the industry forward. For more information, please visit http://www.emasiamag.com/awards2008.
