Fluxes are an interesting element of working with many solder applications. With so many specialized fluxes there is usually a perfectly-tailored flux for removing oxides from any solderable surface. Even though we love fluxes at Indium Corporation – not all of our customers share that same affection.
It is understandable; some applications cannot tolerate flux contamination. If a customer chooses to say goodbye to flux we still have a few tricks to form a solder bond without that formulation of organic acids and solvents with which we are so familiar. One of those tricks is to use NanoFoil® to bond the two parts. For a comprehensive background of the process, click here.
