The award was presented to WKK's Chairman & CEO Senta Wong and Victor Chang, GM, by Nihon Superior's President Tetsuro Nishimura in appreciation for supporting the SN100C Global Team.
At the end of 2008, WKK signed a license agreement with Nihon Superior for the right to manufacture and sell SN100C lead-free solder in China. WKK dedicated a manufacturing factory in Dongguan, China, and has been delivering SN100C to local customers for the past two years.
Initially developed for use in wave and selective soldering applications, SN100C® is also available as a Lead-Free HASL finish, solder paste, solid and cored wire, ribbon, pre-forms and spheres. SN100C® is quickly becoming known as the most reliable lead-free alloy in the industry and is outperforming competitive products in Japan, Asia, China, USA and Europe, with increasing numbers of leading manufacturers incorporating it into their processes.
SN100C® is the original patented Sn/Cu/Ni+Ge alloy. Inherent characteristics such as high fluidity, low copper erosion, low drossing, superior wetting and freedom from shrinkage defects along with more than eight years and billions of solder joints to its credit make it a low cost, high reliability lead-free solution.
WKK was established in 1975 as a trading and distribution company supplying capital equipment, materials and services to the printed circuit board (PCB) industry throughout Asia. The company was a natural extension of the business founded by Mr. Wong Wha San, who in 1962, set up a PCB factory. When the business of the factory grew rapidly in 1975, WKK was created as the trading and distribution arm.
As the Group's activities continued to grow, so did its involvement and expertise in dealing with all parts of the world. WKK has been one of the foremost pioneers in supplying capital equipment, materials and services for the electronics industry in China for more than 30 years.
