GREELEY, CO — FCT Assembly to highlight its range of new solder pastes in booth 2317 at the upcoming IPC/APEX conference and exhibition, scheduled to take place April 6-8, 2010 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Convention Center in Las Vegas.

NL930PT is a no-clean, lead-free, halide-free pin probable solder paste. The paste is unique in that it is a clear residue, pin probable paste that can print down to low surface area ratios consistently. Combined with SN100C, this solder paste produces the most cosmetically appealing solder joint available on the market.

NL932 no-clean, lead-free, halide-free solder paste features excellent solderability, enabling the process to handle the most difficult wetting requirements. It also 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, as well as excellent wetting characteristics on all pad finishes.

WS888 is FCT's newest lead-free water soluble solder paste. The paste provides excellent wetting on all surface finishes with consistent printing down to low surface area ratios. Combined with SN100C, this solder paste produces the most cosmetically appealing solder joint on the market and can be run in R/H of 30-65 percent without slump.

FCT's WS159 water-soluble solder paste offers best-in-class solder spread and wetting. It also features print volume consistency down to 12 mm circles and IPC 7095 Class III resistance to voiding using both straight ramp and soak reflow profiles. WS159 is fully cleanable, with the widest cleaning process window in its class.

SN100C Bar Solder is used in thousands of wave soldering machines around the world and has proved its reliability in products exposed to the most severe service environments. FCT Assembly was the first licensee for the Nihon Superior’s SN100C for North America. A licensing agreement has enabled FCT Assembly to manufacture the Nihon Superior SN100C lead free solder in North America, including Canada, United States, Puerto Rico, and Mexico.

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.
