SHENMAO America, Inc. announces that it was awarded a 2019 Global Technology Award in the category of Solder Paste for its PF735-PQ10 Low Temperature Solder (LTS). The award was presented to the company during a Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2019 ceremony that took place during productronica in Munich, Germany.
SHENMAO’s LTS refers to the solder alloy with liquidus below eutectic Sn/Pb37 (183 °C). PF735-PQ10 is a no clean, zero-halogen, low melting point, lead-free solder paste. The peak reflow temperature of PF735-PQ10 can decrease to as low as 160 °C.
Package thickness is reduced as increasing demand for ultra-thin packages. In addition, the reflow temperature of SAC series solder paste is much higher than the glass transition temperature (Tg) of substrates. The warpage becomes a serious issue and generates production yield loss as combining abovementioned factors. LTS paste can reduce the reflow temperature to below 200 °C and hence decrease the PCB and substrate deformation.
SHENMAO has successfully been approved by many international well-known electronic manufacturers. The company strives to offer the best quality without compromising cost and time-to-market while providing maximum value to all customers. SHENMAO America, Inc. blends SMT solder paste at its facility in San Jose, CA for distribution in North America.
Premiering in 2005, the Global Technology Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
