Philips Approves Cookson Lead-Free Wave Solder Alloy

Philips Consumer Electronics Approves the Use of Cookson Electronics' ALPHA® Vaculoy® SACX™ Lead-Free Wave Solder Alloy.
Cookson Electronics Assembly Materials (CEAM) announce the approval of its ALPHA® Vaculoy® SACX™ lead-free wave solder alloy by Philips Consumer Electronics group.

"This approval from Philips Consumer Electronics, adds to the significant momentum that SACX™ is achieving in the highly competitive lead-free alloy market,” said Gerry Campbell, Cookson Electronics' Global Product Manager. “The approval process took more than one and a half years, and during this time Philips Consumer Electronics applied their stringent criteria required for alloy approval. Process yield and PCB reliability were tested through various test runs, including long term reliability testing. Additionally there was a three-month full scale production run to further evaluate the product for process yield and copper dissolution. SACX™ fulfilled the requirements of Philips Consumer Electronics who will now benefit from a significantly lower cost lead-free alloy while maintaining process yield and reliability."

ALPHA® Vaculoy® SACX™ delivers wave soldering process value by providing SAC305 performance at 30% lower cost. Its fast wetting speed offers improved solderability that outperforms all Sn/Cu based alloys. It provides excellent drainage and minimizes bridging defects. ALPHA® Vaculoy® SACX™ creates strong, mechanically sound joints with excellent long-term reliability. Its process window supports the use of a wide range of flux technologies.
