Product Description
The NL932 is a no-clean lead free solder paste designed to meet the requirements for reliable solder joints in Printed Circuit Board assemblies. NL932 displays previously unseen levels of repeatability and consistency even in a wide range of temperatures (65-85F) and relative humidity (25-65% RH). NL932 offers enhanced printing and reflow process windows. Aditionally, NL932's capability of IPC Class III for voiding and ROL-0 IPC classification ensures long-term reliability.

  • Printing
    Stencil aperture design and stencil quality are major factors in achieving excellent print consistency with any lead free solder paste. Laser Cut stencils from Stencils Unlimited are recommended for optimal print performance, and can be custom designed to minimize and improve the yields of any process. Some general stencil aperture design guidelines follow:
    • Fine pitch components (<= 0.020)
      A 0.001 reduction (L & W) to minimize bridging and create proper gasketing between the stencil and SMT pad
    • Discrete components
      A 0.002 reduction (L & W) for water washable and a 0.002 reduction (L & W), with U-shaped home-plates, for no clean to minimize mid-chip solder beads.

    Printer Operation

  • 2cm (~0.75) on startup
  • Add when bead < 1.4 cm (~0.5)
  • Squeegee:
  • Metal, Slic blade preferred
  • 60 degrees from horizontal
  • Speed
  • 25 to 150 mm/sec. (1 to 6 in/sec)
  • Adjust printer for a pull or print demand process
  • Pressure:
  • 0.18-0.27 Kg/cm (squeegee length)
  • Underside Wipe:
  • Slic and Ultraslic stencils should exceed >10 prints/wipe
  • Stencil life / Environment:
  • >8 hours
  • 30-65% RH and 20 C 25 C
  • Tack Life:
  • 24hrs @ 25C / 45% RH
  • Tack Force:
  • 1.5 grams/mm2
  • Slump 0.7mm Pads:
  • 0.4 @ 25C / 1Hour
  • 0.4 @ 80C / 20 minutes
  • Slump 1.5mm Pads:
  • 0.4 @ 25C / 1Hour
  • 0.4 @ 80C / 20 minutes

  • Storage and Handling
    • Cartridges should be stored tip down.
    • No Clean Paste can be stored up to two weeks at room temperature.
    • To prolong the shelf life of NL932, refrigerate between 5C~10C, (41F~50F). At this range the shelf life will exceed 8 months.
    • NL932 should not be allowed to freeze.
    • When refrigerated, lead free solder paste must be allowed to warm up to room temperature.
    • Lead Free Paste must be >= 22C, (~66F) prior to applying to stencil for processing.
    • Working range of NL932 is between 22-32C, (~66F - 89.5F).
    • First-In-First-Out (FIFO) inventory management practices should be used with all lead free solder pastes.

    Heating
    A linear ramp of 0.7C to 2.0C C/second is suggested to gradually remove the solvents and other volatile components in the lead free solder paste. This also helps in minimizing solder balls, beading and bridging from hot slump.
    A linear ramp also helps minimize depletion of flux activity which can occur with excessive temperature, preheat times, and at very high reflow temperatures.
    A profile with a soak between 200-210C for less than 20 seconds can be used to reduce void formation on BGA and CSP devices. (Request FCTAs profile guide to void reduction).
    While a linear profile typically does not produce tombstoning, a short 10-20 second dwell prior to transitioning into the liquidus point of the solder, and minimizing the QR between soak and liquid temperatures will help minimize tombstoning if experienced.

    Cooling
    A cooling rate of 3C-4C per second is recommended for most lead/free reflow applications. These parameters should be utilized to insure a fine grain solder structure and minimal IMC layer.
