Can low-temperature solder save you time and money?

Through enhanced cost, safety and environmental benefits of low-temperature solder (LTS) alloys for electronics assembly, the adoption of these materials by a wide range of industries and applications is inevitable. Innovative solder alloys, such as Alpha's HRL1, give manufacturers the flexibility to choose different substrates and consider new designs, all with mechanical reliability which exceeds other LTS alloys.

ALPHA HRL3 is a low-temperature lead-free alloy designed to exhibit improved thermomechanical reliability and soldering performance. It features a unique blend of additives to deliver high wetting performance and low Copper erosion compared to SAC305 and Low Temp Alloy X. ALPHA HRL3 is also suitable for low-temperature, lead-free solder paste users who require a compatible low-temperature alloy in Pin-Through-Hole (PTH) applications.

Advantages of low-temperature solder (LTS)

  • Lower operational costs by reducing the need for additional materials, labor and energy
  • Reduce heat-related defects such as non-wet opens, head-in-pillow and voiding
  • Eliminate warpage for many thermally sensitive components through lower reflow peak temperature (reduced by 60° C)
  • Improve product reliability and first-pass yield on your SMT line
  • Alpha offers low-temperature solder pastes, preforms and cored wire
