I am looking for information on reflow temps for a flex board. There is only one 6 pin IC but the board has a 3M double sided tape. Is it possible to reflow without damaging the tape. Any suggestions? Do you have a profiler for your reflow oven?

At a previous job I had been taught that when reflow soldering polyimide flex circuits, it was necessary to pre-bake them before reflow soldering to prevent delamination. Our procedures said that there must be a 1hr bake prior to reflow, and the flex

If you kink the leads will you be able to insert it without flexing the board/moving any of the other components? Also these pin headers aren't always designed for this process so have you checked that it will take the elevated temperatures?

I have a customer that is wanting to use a low-temp solder paste such as SnBi for a lead free circuit, however they are specifying PET for the flex circuit. I have always used polyimide for SMT reflow due to the temperature limitations of polyester.

Rob: You say, "We usually determine our run process based on the heaviest components, and propensity for falling off during the second reflow process. If there's only the one BGA on that side of the board, we'd tend to run that side first." We agree

Hi all, We had similar problems a while back. Boards would fail at test but if you applied pressure to the BGA they would pass. Turned out that during the PTH assembly process the Operators were flexing the cards during the insertion of an Oupin C

Sorry, we didn't do a good job of understanding your question. For more on delamination, look here: http://www.smtnet.com/Forums/Index.cfm?CFApp=1&Message_ID=54655 ... but we're not so sure that this is a straight delamination issue, because: * One
