Initially developed for use in wave and selective soldering applications, SN100C� is also available as a Lead-Free HASL finish, bar solder, solder paste, no-clean, water-soluble solder paste, solid and cored wire, ribbon, pre-forms and spheres, as well as an advanced full line of fluxes. 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.

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.
