Kester Announces Approval of FL250D No-Clean Paste by Leading Network Equipment Company

May 01, 2009

ITASCA, IL � April 2009 � Kester announces that its FL250D no-clean solder paste has been added to the global approved materials list of a leading network equipment company due to its excellent properties in terms of eliminating/preventing head-in-pillow defects.

FL250D is a low voiding, no-clean solder paste specifically designed for maximum robustness in reflow profiling and stencil printing. Capable of fine feature printing with Type 3 (-325/+500 mesh) powder at print speeds up to 200 mm/sec (8 in/sec) along with a wide process window and long idle times makes the FL250D the premium paste choice for high- and low-volume manufacturing alike.

�This approval is further proof that Kester has become the premier solder paste supplier in terms of offering products that prevent and/or eliminate the head-in-pillow defect,� said Tony Longo, Kester's Global Product Manager for solder paste. �Kester's in-depth understanding of the mechanism that causes head-in-pillow defects has allowed Kester's Research and Development team to develop best-in-class paste products that help solve our customers issues and meet their most pressing needs.�
