FCT Solder to Focus on Lead-Free Projects and Questions with SN100C® Lead-Free Alloy at Productronica 2009

Dec 07, 2009

GREELEY, CO — September, 2009 - FCT Solder, a division of FCT Assembly and an authorized Licensee of Nihon Superior Co. Ltd.’s SN100C product line, announces plans to exhibit its popular SN100C® Lead-Free Solder Paste, Bar and Wire and UltraSlic™ FG solder paste stencil in Hall A4 Stand 570 of the upcoming Productronica exhibition. The event is scheduled to take place 10th – 13th November 2009 at the New Munich Trade Fair Center in Munich, Germany.

FCT Solder invites visitors to Productronica to bring along their lead-free projects and questions to its booth for an SN100C® alloy consultation.

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.

 

NEW - In addition, FCT will highlight its UltraSlic™ FG solder paste stencil, the latest breakthrough in stencil technology. With superior paste release below surface area ratios of 0.5, UltraSlic™ FG outperforms all existing stencil technologies, including electroformed. Using the latest stencil laser technology and Datum Alloys’ new Fine Grain stencil material, exclusively distributed by Ed Fagan, Inc., UltraSlic™ FG stencils provide superior aperture registration, higher performance and lower cost compared to electroform, the option of step stencils, and the option of same day turnaround times.
