Indium Boosts Flux-Cored Wire Capabilities


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation is now offering ultrafine flux-cored wire down to 0.006” (0.15mm) in diameter for standard Pb-free alloys.

Indium Corporation’s ultrafine flux-cored wire was developed to meet the progressively demanding requirements for increased solder joint density and miniaturization in applications where solder paste reflow and other soldering approaches are not effective, such as robotic soldering, fine-pitch component attachment, and hand soldering. Indium Corporation flux-cored wire offers:

  • Evenly wound layers onto the spools to avoid tangles during use
  • Consistent diameters that meet the most stringent requirements
  • No flux voids within the wire for consistent, worry-free soldering

Indium Corporation uses only “conflict-free” and grade A (per ASTM B32) metals, as well as other high-purity metals for its flux-cored wire. All materials have been tested and certified to meet IPC J-STD-004B and other relevant industry specifications, including the legacy military specification QQ-S-571F.

Featured flux vehicles for the 0.006” wire is Core 230-RC (REL1) and CW-808 (REL0). Both of these fluxes were developed for robotic soldering applications and contain Indium Corporation’s low-spatter technology.
