Nihon Superior Co. Ltd., a supplier of advanced soldering materials to the global market, announces that it has been awarded a 2011 NPI Award in the category of Soldering Equipment for its SN100C (044) Flux-Cored Solder Wire. The award was presented to the company’s President, Tetsuro Nishimura, during a May 12, 2011 ceremony that took place at the Shanghai Everbright Convention & Exhibition Center during NEPCON China 2011.
SN100C (044) completely halogen-free high performance flux-cored solder wire makes it possible to achieve a high first pass yield because of its excellent wetting and spread, while providing an approximately 30 percent faster soldering speed in manual soldering when compared to previously available completely halogen-free flux-cored solder wire.
Established in 2006, the EM Asia Innovation Awards program strives to recognize and celebrate excellence in the Asian electronics industry, inspiring companies to achieve the highest standards and push the industry forward.
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.
