Technic Releases Ceramistan 1031

Reading time ( words)

Technic is pleased to announce the release of Ceramistan 1031, a pure tin electrolytic plating bath specially formulated for sensitive ceramic components, connectors, pins, and LED/MELF resistors. The Ceramistan 1031 process produces a dense, small grain deposit that provides excellent solderability, even after exposure to extended steam-age testing. The Ceramistan 1031 process offers several key cost-saving features including reduced coupling, longer bath life, and reduced oxidation.

Ceramistan 1031 also significantly reduces and can even eliminate spattering during reflow, a problem that often occurs with a standard tin bath. The process is compatible with all standard barrel and vibratory plating lines, and Technic’s patented Spouted Bed Electroplater (SBE®).

“Ceramistan 1031 has proven to be an ideal solution for applications requiring pure tin. The process performs extremely well in a full range of applications with consistent quality of the deposit and performance. With a longer bath life, reduced coupling, and reduced oxidation, Ceramistan 1031 has shown significant improvements to the quality, cost, and performance in pure tin plating for electronic applications,” says Eric Smith, R&D Chemist, Technic Advanced Technology Division.

Five Priorities for Implementing Direct Imaging Technologies

11/08/2022 | Brendan Hogan, MivaTek
The circuit fabrication industry has always been the unsung hero of the electronics era. SPC, TQM, ISO, and 50 other acronyms have ruled the day to govern quality and process approaches. I’ve been in the industry for 39 years and I feel more like a craftsman than ever before—trying to figure out how to produce the impossible and maintain a profit. With smaller features, exotic materials, endless plating, and press cycles, the industry feels like it is in transition. Soon enough the lines between microelectronics and PCB will be forever blurred.
