Metal-based immersion tin chemicals for PCB surface finish

The drive for using lead-free technology in electronic equipment will lead to an increased demand for immersion tin as an alternative finish as a substitute for commonly used HASL. If and how immersion tin technology is suitable for increasing demands resulting from lead-free processing is not known today. Answering this question is the aim of this project. As a preliminary result a suitable immersion tin process has already been defined and will be fine-tuned further in the course of the Project. SMEs using the technology will be able to match competition on the market when leading OEMs will demand and leading PCB manufacturers will switch to lead-free technologies in the near future. Ormecon have provided process chemicals and technical service (guidelines) as well as support to ensure the best process output and help SMEs to remain a high level of knowledge and competitiveness.
