Cobar Launches Newest Tacky Flux for Lead-Free Solders
The Balver Zinn/Cobar Group introduces Tempotac (120-TEM), its newest next-generation tacky flux.
Tempotac (385-TEM) is a well-established product within Cobar's product portfolio and features the basic ingredients of a solder paste flux including various activators. With the introduction of lead-free solders that include higher process temperatures, a new product has been introduced - 120-TEM. This product can withstand higher temperatures and is available in a blue color for inspection purposes when required.
Tempotac is a remarkably versatile material that can be used in an array of rework applications including:
o Reballing - where availability of BGAs with lead-free spheres is limited, replace lead-free spheres with SnPb spheres before mounting (e.g. military, aerospace, medical, etc.)
o Repair Applications - remove and replace BGAs
o BGA Placement - Tempotac can be used instead of solder paste
o Bridging - Removes bridges in QFP rework
Tempotac is safe for use and passes all SIR tests. Additionally, any minimal residues left can be removed using a typical flux-remover.
