High-Performance Pure Tin For Ceramic Components
Technic is pleased to announce the release of Ceramistan 1031, a pure tin electrolytic plating bath specially formulated for sensitive ceramic components, connectors, pins, and LED/MELF resistors. The Ceramistan 1031 process produces a dense, small grain deposit that provides excellent solderability, even after exposure to extended steam-age testing. The Ceramistan 1031 process offers several key cost-saving features including reduced coupling, longer bath life, and reduced oxidation.
Ceramistan 1031 also significantly reduces and can even eliminate spattering during reflow, a problem that often occurs with a standard tin bath. The process is compatible with all standard barrel and vibratory plating lines, and Technic’s patented Spouted Bed Electroplater (SBE®).
Ceramistan 1031 has proven to be an ideal solution for applications requiring pure tin. The process performs extremely well in a full range of applications with consistent quality of the deposit and performance. With a longer bath life, reduced coupling, and reduced oxidation, Ceramistan 1031 has shown significant improvements to the quality, cost, and performance in pure tin plating for electronic applications
