Indium Corporation will feature its ultra-reliable, void-reducing Indium8.9HF Solder Paste for automotive applications at SMTA International, September 22-26, Rosemont, Illinois, USA.

Indium8.9HF is a proven solder paste series that delivers no-clean, halogen-free solutions designed to produce low-voiding, enhanced electrical reliability, and improved stability during the printing process. It is specially formulated to accommodate the higher processing temperatures required by the SnAgCu, SnAg, and other alloy systems favored by the automotive electronics industry.Indium8.9HF:

  • Demonstrates consistent printing and reflow performance for up to 12 months in refrigerated storage
  • Maintains excellent printing and reflow performance after remaining at room temperature for one month
  • Delivers excellent response-to-pause printing performance even after being left on the stencil for 60 hours
  • Performs with both Pb and Pb-free alloys

Indium8.9HF provides unique oxidation barrier technology that eliminates HIP defects and graping, making it perfectly suited for automotive applications. It is also able to enhance the reliability of automotive products in numerous ways:

  • Exceeds all requirements for enhanced electrical reliability and SIR performance
  • Improves thermal conductivity and thermal reliability with industry-proven low-voiding performance
  • Resists premature flux spread to prevent surfaces from oxidizing
  • Meets HKMC MS184-01 testing criteria Type B—one of the automotive industry’s most stringent reliability criteria
