What is solder paste?

Solder paste is a new type of microelectronic soldering material born with the application of surface mount technology in the PCB industry. Solder paste is a paste mixture formed by stirring and mixing tin alloy powder and solder paste (including rosin, surfactant, solvent, thixotropic agent, etc.).

The soldering performance of solder paste mainly depends on the composition of tin alloy powder, the composition of solder paste formula and the ratio configuration of tin alloy powder and solder paste.

FAQ

Solder paste is a new type of soldering material that emerged with SMT. It is a paste mixture formed by mixing solder powder, flux, and other surfactants and thixotropic agents.

1. Lead-free solder paste or leaded solder paste

With environmental protection awareness, manufacturers are more inclined to choose lead-free solder paste. But some still use leaded solder paste in order to save costs.

2. Washable solder paste or no-clean solder paste

It needs to be determined according to the processing technology after reflow soldering and the cleanliness of the PCB board. If there are tin residues on the PCB board, it will cause a short circuit due to the heat and melting of the components, and reduce the service life of the product.

3. Solder paste alloy composition
The alloy composition in the solder paste determines the melting point of the solder paste. You need to understand the welding process and operating temperature of products, and the adhesion and ductility of different metal components.

  • Experience: When you have some solder paste manufacturers to decide, you can consider to compare their manufacturing experiences, equipment they are using and technology they have.
  • Certifications: The manufacturer should have relevant certifications solder paste manufacturing certifications, which demonstrate their commitment to quality and safety.
  • Customers' review: This is a real way to know a manufacturer based on the customers' feedback.
