Abstract

Government restrictions of CFC solvents has pushed the electronics industry towards "no-clean" surface-mount manufacturing. The benefits of "no-clean" processing are being realized in reduced manufacturing costs. The cost of cleaning equipment, chemicals, and labor are eliminated. Problems associated with the use and disposal of environ- mentally hazardous chemicals are also eliminated. This evolution has pushed many manufacturers towards "no-clean" rosin-based solder pastes.
