Alpha is pleased to announce the launch of its new ALPHA® Telecore HF-850 Halogen-Free cored solder wire developed to comply with the IEC, JPCA, and JEDEC halogen content specifications while meeting the highest industry standards for reliability. Telecore HF-850 is very fast wetting with low flux spatter and low levels of fumes creating a cleaner operator friendly working environment for both drag soldering and other common soldering applications.
?ALPHA® Telecore HF-850 cored solder wire is suitable for use in any commercial no-clean soldering application and definitely a product to implement a full halogen-free soldering process,? said Eric Poh, Alpha?s global product manager for cored solder wire products. ?Telecore HF-850 also provides good spread characteristics that improve first pass yield per JIS greater than 80%.?
ALPHA® Telecore HF-850 cored solder wire?s halogen-free feature allows it to be used in processes in which other halogen-free soldering materials are used. Its clear, non-tacky residue does not require cleaning, and its excellent joint appearance allows for easy inspection. Telecore HF-850 is available in the standard SAC305 alloy and in the ALPHA® SACX Plus® 0307 low Ag alloy that offers excellent soldering value versus the higher cost of higher-Ag alloys.
