Christopher Associates Offers Koki Surface Mount Adhesives

Nov 01, 2010

Christopher Associates today announced that the company now carries Koki’s Surface Mount Adhesives (SMAs). The silica-filled epoxies are ideal for chip attachment during wave solder and double-sided reflow. The adhesives offer both ease of dispense and high bond strength and are compatible with Fuji, Asymtek, Panasonic, Camelot, Siemens and most other machines. A printable version in DEK Proflo heads also is available.

In recent months, both of the major sources of SMAs ceased US production and moved overseas. This has caused a series of pricing and logistic issues. To meet this need, Christopher Associates is now offering alternative materials that have been industry standards for years and are tested, available and priced competitively.

Koki’s SMAs can be used for microBGA and BGA corner bonding to structurally reinforce components against drop test failures. The SMAs are red for high color contrast, are dispensable at high or low speeds, and demonstrate consistent, high profile dots. Additional features include:

  • Excellent dispensability

  • Excellent green strength

  • Excellent adhesion through the wave solder process

  • Fast cure
