MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions, a global integrated solutions provider from our Circuitry, Assembly and Semiconductor divisions that provides unmatched capabilities in electronics design and manufacturing, is pleased to announce that it has received two Mexico Technology Awards in the Solder Paste category , with ALPHA’s OM-565 HRL3 Low Temperature Solder Paste and in the Conformal Coatings category for Electrolube’s UVCLX UV Curing Polyurethane Coating. Both awards were presented to MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions during a ceremony that took place during the SMTA Guadalajara Show, September 21-22.

Designed to mitigate distortion-induced defects in temperature-sensitive chip packages, ALPHA OM-565 HRL3 Low Temperature Solder Paste improves electrochemical performance over existing low melting point solders and provides excellent compatibility when used in combination with alternative solutions for ALPHA for contact processing applications. The solder paste enables superior wettability to minimize defects after reformatting, such as non-wet open (NWO) and head pillow (HIP). Next-generation devices require larger footprints and thinner form factor designs that deliver superior processing power compared to existing technologies. These next-generation packages create assembly challenges at traditional SMT reflow temperatures. ALPHA OM-565 HRL3 enables reduction of peak overflow to 175 °C to mitigate common strain-induced defects such as HiP and NWO to improve assembly yields.

Electrolube’s UVCLX is considered a “greener” coating than many others, but also delivers high performance results. Formulated with 75% bio-organic content, UVCLX protects electronic circuits from the harshest environments, especially in the automotive industry where components are at high risk of chemical attack. Applied via a selective coating machine, UVCLX outperforms traditional UV curing coatings by being dry to the touch after only a brief exposure to the correct wavelength of UV light. UVCLX guarantees full curing in less than 24 hours by virtue of the secondary chemical curing mechanism, which ensures that even shaded areas are fully cured in a few hours. Compared to traditional UV curable coatings that can take weeks to fully cure and still have some shadow areas that remain uncured, UVCLX ensures a much faster work flow.
