ALPHA® OM-358 Ultra-Low Voiding, Zero-Halogen Solder Paste

ALPHA® OM-358 is a lead-free, zero-halogen, no-clean solder paste designed to provide ultra-low voiding performance on all component types including bottom termination components. ALPHA® OM-358 achieves IPC Class III voiding on BGA components and less than 10% voiding on bottom termination components. This paste is designed for ultra-low voiding performance with high reliability alloys such as Innolot as well as traditional SAC alloys.

ALPHA® AccuFlux™ BTC-578 Preforms

ALPHA® AccuFlux™ BTC-578 Preforms are designed to enhance reliability and heat transfer through the reduction of voiding under bottom termination components.  The Preform System can achieve less than 5% voiding in final solder joints under proper processing conditions. It does this with a 95% confidence level. What’s more, ALPHA® AccuFlux™ BTC-578 flux coated preforms and solder paste combined with an optimized stencil design result in minimal to non-detectable flux residues, meeting the most demanding electro-chemical reliability requirements. The Preform System can easily be implemented into an existing SMT circuit assembly process. You will leverage ALPHA’s technology and expertise to design the most consistent low voiding solution for your application.
