MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions, a global leader in soldering and electronics assembly technologies, is pleased to launch ALPHA® OM-372, an ultra-fine feature, lead-free, no-clean solder paste designed to provide ultra-high electrochemical reliability on fine pitched, low standoff components.
Developed to respond to the demands of increased miniaturization, ALPHA OM-372 is formulated to deliver low post reflow residue and superior transfer efficiency on fine feature pads as low as 80×130µm (008004). ALPHA OM-372 shows excellent results in advanced SIR, demonstrating excellent electrochemical reliability with no denditric growth on low standoff packages. The solder paste is optimized for fine feature applications requiring Type 5 and Type 6 powders.
The combination of these best-in-class features as well as excellent HiP and NWO performance makes ALPHA OM-372 ideal for a broad range of high board density applications requiring smaller, thinner, and lighter form factor components, such as those found in mobile, wearable, and computer devices.
“ALPHA OM-372 serves a critical need as miniaturization drives complexity of board designs” said Paul Salerno, Global Portfolio Manager for SMT Assembly. “This paste not only meets the most challenging fine-feature printing and reflow conditions, but provides superior electrochemical reliability performance required by these complex assemblies”.
