Press Release Summary:

Water-Soluble Solder Paste minimizes voids.

May 03, 2013 - Manufactured with standard type 3 powder in Sn63, Sn62, and Indalloy100, Indium6.4 minimizes voiding under QFN and BGA assemblies. Whereas typical water-soluble paste has approximately 15–30% voiding, Indium 6.4 consistently yields less than 5%. Additional features include optimized response-to-pause printing, cleanability, and reflow properties as well as extended stencil life and slump resistance.

Indium Corporation Announces Void-Reducing Water-Soluble Solder Paste

Press release date: May 02, 2013

Indium6.4 Water-Soluble Solder Paste’s flux chemistry minimizes voiding under QFN and BGA assemblies. A typical water-soluble solder paste has approximately 15-30 percent voiding; however, Indium6.4 consistently yields less than five percent.

Indium6.4 provides:
1. Fewer voids
2. Smaller voids
3. Good cleanability and reflow properties
4. Exceptional response-to-pause printing
5. Extended stencil life
6. Exceptional slump resistance

Indium6.4 is manufactured with standard type 3 powder in Sn63, Sn62, and Indalloy100 (tin, lead, and silver). It joins Indium6.3 as one of Indium Corporation’s top-performing water-soluble solder pastes.
