SN100C P602 is completely halogen-free, which means there are no intentional halogens of F, Cl, Br or even I hidden in the chemistry. The SN100C alloy delivers a Silver-free stable microstructure in an alloy that can accommodate the long-term cyclic strains and impact strains to which a solder joint can be subjected.
The lead-free paste has smooth bright fillets with few shrinkage defects and a stable microstructure with minimal growth of the interfacial intermetallic, resulting in highly reliable solder joints. SN100C provides excellent printing and reflow in fine-pitch circuitry, low hot and cold slump, and good coalescence and wetting with no solder balls.
Premiering in 2005, the Global Technology 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 are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
Nihon Superior was founded in 1966 when it began marketing unique flux products imported from the US. The company made its mark on society by gathering the most advanced soldering and brazing technologies and products from around the world, and supplying them to companies in the metal-joining industry. A turning point for the company came when it started developing its own soldering materials and with the success of its unique SN100C lead-free solder alloy Nihon Superior has become a major player in the global market. To support the growing demand for its products Nihon Superior has established manufacturing and sales centers in Japan, China and other Asian countries and formed business partnerships with companies in other markets.
