OSAKA, JAPAN - Nihon Superior Co. Ltd. announces that it has been awarded a 2010 SMT VISION Award in the category of Soldering Materials for its completely halogen-free lead-free flux-cored solder wire SN100C (040). The award was presented to the company during a Monday, April 5, 2010 ceremony that took place in the Mandalay Bay Resort & Convention Center in Las Vegas before the start of APEX 2010.

Using SN100C (040), no tin whiskers were observed in testing after 1,000 hours of exposure to the environmental condition of 85°C/85%,temperature and relative humidity.

SN100C (040) halogen-free flux-cored wire is an effective solution in preventing Sn whiskers due to corrosion of the solder surface. Different formulations of other so-called halogen-free cored-wire fluxes on various board finishes need to be carefully examined for the possible incidence of whiskers.

A highlight of the range of the new SN100C products, which includes solder paste and flux-cored wire, is that they are completely halogen-free and contain no intentional additions of fluorine (F), chlorine (Cl), bromine (Br) or iodine (I) in their formulation, while still delivering excellent wetting on all types of substrates. In addition, the SN100C alloy delivers a silver-free stable microstructure that can accommodate the long term strains and impact conditions to which a solder joint can be subjected.

Now in its 18th year, the SMT VISION Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology in key areas are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
