Cranston, RI, USA - Technic is pleased to announce the commercial release of Pallaspeed® Pd/Ni NFA, a production proven, sulfate palladium nickel process that produces exceptionally low stress ductile deposits over a wide current density range.
The Pallaspeed® Pd/Ni NFA process is specifically designed to eliminate free ammonia, improving both worker and environmental safety through the elimination of harmful fumes. The process is also chloride free, eliminating possible corrosion of stainless steel equipment. The pH of Pallaspeed® Pd/Ni NFA is more stable than conventional Pd/Ni processes, reducing the need for frequent ammonia additions.
The Pallaspeed® Pd/Ni NFA process produces industry leading, micro-crack free deposits at thicknesses up to 2.5 microns with excellent adhesion. The deposits pass both the bleach and sulfurous acid porosity tests commonly used in the electronics industry.
This process is available globally under either the “NFA” designation in North America or the Pallaspeed® Pd/Ni LA designation in Asia and Europe.
