FCT Assembly Intros Paste Printing Technology
Ultra fine coating for stencils.
Greeley, CO — FCT Assembly's new NanoSlic stencil is said to be the most advanced stencil technology available for solder paste printing. The new NanoSlic stencil is based on the proven Slic stencil with its advanced foil composition and FCTA's state-of-the-art laser cutting process. A permanent nano coating is then applied that is based on a new chemistry platform called Hybrid-T Technology. The coating imparts a highly hydrophobic and oleophobic surface to the bottom of the stencil and aperture walls.

The robust coating should last the life of the stencil. The technology is comprised of a specifically engineered nano coating applied over the company's proven Slic stencil. The NanoSlic technology is surprisingly cost-effective, making improved yields available to all levels of the industry. The technology can be used with current assembly equipment and processes.

Using the newly developed coating system, NanoSlic is sprayed onto the stencil surface and aperture walls, reducing bridging and significantly improving paste release, permitting consistent printing of the smallest area ratios. The technology will be applied by FCT Assembly at its Memphis, TN location. An added benefit, the NanoSlic coating, is environmentally friendly. It does not use any Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), a toxic substance currently being investigated by the EPA.

The company provides knowledge, expertise and solutions to solder and stencil customers. As the only solder company in the industry that can leverage both elements of the printing process, FCT's experts have vast chemistry experience and credible knowledge. In addition, the company has the flexibility to provide customer formulations with quick turns.
