Is it possible to have zero flux or paste spattering for all smt reflow pcbs. We are seeing around 0.4% of flux spattering and looking forward to zero defect.

I don't believe you'll get an exact zero flux with no-clean pastes. Water soluable yes, but I don't see it happening with no-clean; at least not this year. As for spatter, you should be able to control this. Can you define what you call "spatter"?

Yes, a flux with a fast wetting rate will be more prone to have spattering. Fluxes with high boiling point solvents are also more prone to have spattering, if the same flux is fast in wetting rate.

We see spattered(spitting of flux or solder to nearby area) solder/flux on gold fingers.We view the gold fingers area under 30x before reflow and it is cleaned but after reflow we see flux droplets or solder on gold fingers. We tried to changed a new

For the problem part, describe the pads on the board and the aperatures on the stencil.

Hello, I am looking for input on the 7 zone convectional reflow oven on the temperature profiling. I having a problem with the flux/solder spattering on the Au cotact fingers. I have ran some experiment with the soak time and reflow time. Anyway,

Hi All, Recently, we encountered strange defect at our SMT line. We can see solder ball spatter around at one of the component pad. This lead to insufficient solder defect at 1 side of the component. The other side of the component look good(Meet

I've had a lot of experience with solder spatter. It's usually related to moisture (humidity) uptake by the paste, or outgassing from plating: particularly Au/Ni. Solder spatter from the plating will change from board-vendor to board-vendor. I shoul

Hi Yannick A lot of things can cause solder balls and spattering. Such as a to steep preheat profile and to much solder present. Check out more info on: http://www.smtinfocus.com/smt_failure_list.html

Search the fine SMTnet Archives for background on solder on gold fingers. As we recall: * Paste selection * Proper reflow recipe tuning ... are important.
