NL932 No-Clean Paste

NL932 No-Clean Paste

GREELEY, CO — FCT Assembly introduces its NL932 no-clean, lead-free, halide-free solder paste. The paste features excellent solderability, enabling the process to handle the most difficult wetting requirements.

NL932 improves stencil life and provides superior cosmetics, especially when using SN100C. The lead-free paste offers excellent print consistency with high process capability index across all board designs. In addition to being very cosmetically appealing when used with the SN100C, NL932 also provides good print release down to .55 SAR when used with the Slic Stencil.

NL932 features excellent wetting characteristics on all surface finishes, including OSP, Ni/Au, Ni/Pd/Au, SN100C and HAL. The paste displays previously unseen levels of repeatability and consistency even in a wide range of temperatures (65°-85°F) and relative humidity (25-65% RH).

This product is a drop-in vs. most pastes currently used, making it extremely user friendly. Additionally, the easy application solder paste delivers complete removal of flux residue, bright, shiny SN100C solder joints and excellent solder spread on all common pad finishes.

NL932 features high-speed stencil printing up to 200 mm/sec with excellent low voiding performance that exceeds IPC Class III requirements. The paste also features enhanced tack performance and printer open time, as well as shiny solder joints when used with SN100C.

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.
