Flux-cored wire earns new product award

23 November 2022 News

Indium Corporation has earned the Circuits Assembly New Product Introduction (NPI) Award for its flux-cored wire, CW-818. The award was presented during a ceremony at IPC APEX Expo on 24 January in San Diego, California, USA.

The NPI Awards recognise the leading new products for electronics assembly during the past 12 months. Honourees are selected by an independent panel of practicing engineers.

“As a materials supplier, our belief that materials science can change the world is present in every one of our products,” said Robert McKerrow, senior product specialist for Indium Corporation’s wave soldering and flux-cored wire products. “By earning this recognition for its unique combination of soldering speed and spread, combined with overall cleanliness, we’re eager for CW-818 to make its mark on the industry as a proven product.”

Designed to meet the requirements of manual and robotic soldering processes, Indium Corporation's halide-free CW-818 combines superior soldering speed and spread with improved overall cleanliness to deliver a flux-cored wire with enhanced soldering capabilities, even at higher soldering iron tip temperatures.

CW-818 excels in manual and robotic soldering applications where the J-STD-004C high-reliability category is desired or required, or applications where extra wetting power is needed to achieve a higher throughput.
