Probe testability measures the nature of the flux residue to determine whether it interferes with the post-soldering electronic probe testing of the circuit board. This data proves that Indium Corporation’s Project 99 wave solder fluxes produce the solder reliability that you need.
Surface Insulation Resistance (SIR) tests measure the post soldering effect on the electrical integrity of the circuit boards. This post explores the SIR data that proves that Indium Corporation’s Project 99 wave solder fluxes produce the solder reliability that you need.
Unlike the copper coupon test, which examines the corrosivity during and after the wave soldering process...
