Indium Corporation earned the Mexico Technology Award for its patent-pending Durafuse™ LT low-temperature alloy system.

The Mexico Technology Awards, sponsored by Mexico EMS, recognizes the best electronics manufacturing innovations in the electronics manufacturing industry in Mexico produced by OEM manufacturing equipment and materials suppliers over the last year.

“Indium Corporationcontinues to be honored by the recognition Durafuse™ LT has received from the electronics assembly industry,” said Tim Twining, Vice President of Marketing. “We developedDurafuse™ LT as an innovative solution to the challenges of conventional low-temperature solders as part of our belief that materials science changes the world. Because of it, we now have a proven product that can address the electronics assembly challenges of today and the future.”

Durafuse™ LT is a novel, low-temperature alloy system designed to provide high-reliability in low-temperature applications that need to reflow below 210°C. Where traditional low-temperature solders can produce brittle solder joints that are susceptible to drop shock failures, Durafuse™ LT provides improved drop shock resilience, outclassing BiSn or BiSnAg alloys, and performing better than SAC305 with optimum process setup. Durafuse™ LT:

  • Provides a solution for heat-sensitive components and flex polymers
  • Prevents thermal warpage of processor components and multilayer boards
  • Meets low-temperature requirements for step soldering, particularly in RF shield attachment and rework applications
