Indium Corporation Introduces New Fast-Wetting, Low-Spatter Flux-Cored Wire for Robotic and Laser Soldering

January 19, 2021

Indium Corporation announces that it is now offering CW-232, a uniquely formulated flux-cored wire that combines superior wetting speed and spread with extremely low-spatter performance.

Indium Corporation’s CW-232 is a highly activated rosin flux-cored wire developed to meet the demanding requirements of robotic and laser soldering applications by delivering additional wetting power in order to achieve higher throughput. CW-232 also works exceptionally well in hand soldering applications. Due to its “no-spatter” technology, CW-232 eliminates flux spattering that can burn operators’ hands, impair the vision system of the robotic soldering machines, or make finished products less aesthetically appealing.

Indium Corporation’s CW-232 offers:

  • Extremely low-spatter performance
  • Very fast wetting, even capable of soldering to heavily tarnished surfaces
  • Light-colored residue
  • Compatible with Pb-free and SnPb alloys
  • Compatible with HASL, Immersion Silver, ENIG, and OSP surface finishes
