UP-78 Paste Flux is available in 30cc syringes, 100 and 125 gram jars, and 6” cartridges.
Formulated for standard and fine pitch printing through stencil apertures. Suitable for use across a wide variety of process settings, including rework applications with BGA’s and other components. UP-78 Paste Flux is especially suitable for printing on assemblies that have OSP coated copper pads.
Clean, dry air or Nitrogen atmosphere. A straight ramp profile at 0.8 – 1.2°C per second ramp rate is recommended. High density assemblies may require preheating within the profile and may be accomplished as follows:
Ramp @ 60 – 120°C/min to 145 - 160°C.
Dwell @ 145 - 160°C for 0.5 – 2.0 minutes.
Ramp @ 1 - 2°C/sec to 210 - 225°C peak temperature. Time above 183°C, 45 – 70 seconds.
Ramp down to R. T. @ 1.5 – 2.0°C/sec.
