Cobar Solder Products Announces New Low-VOC Flux Technology Ideal for Lead-Free

Londonderry, New Hampshire, USA - Cobar Solder Products announces the introduction of 94QMB9 a low-VOC soldering flux ideally suited for lead-free soldering in wave and selective soldering systems. It evaporates more readily than VOC-free formulations and thus reduces preheating time and the potential for oxidation and splatter, which allows for maximum equipment through put and energy savings.

Cobar's 94QMB9 is an innovative no-clean flux containing DI-water and alcohol. This flux technology features a proprietary, non-ionic activator system that exhibits the functionality of a block-polymer. Its reactivity is released and boosted beyond a threshold activation temperature. 94QMB9 withstands the higher temperatures required for lead-free soldering while maintaining its wetting characteristics. Its robust formula takes advantage of the latest advances in synthetic materials and delivers the wetting performance needed in demanding lead-free soldering applications.

Cobar B.V. has offered advanced fluxes since its inception and is the leader in offering flux solutions for demanding soldering requirements. Cobar B.V. has offered pioneering VOC free fluxes for lead-free soldering since 2000 and has a wide selection available, all of them in daily use throughout the world in a wide range of applications especially automotive electronics. 94QMB9 is a low VOC flux solution to the evolving demands of the lead-free soldering.

Cobar BV was accredited to ISO 9001 in 1994 and to ISO 14001 in 1997, and is also accredited to NATO's AQAP-110.

Cobar Solder Products is the U.S. subsidiary of the Cobar Group, a multi-million dollar corporation with operations and distributors in all major areas of the world. Cobar is a recognized leader in lead-free and VOC-free soldering materials.
