Atotech’s sub 20µm universal final finish solution PallaBond® at the IPC APEX Expo 2017

Germany - February 6, 2017 - At IPC APEX Expo 2017, booth #3651, Atotech is going to exhibit its revolutionary final finish PallaBond®. This novel nickel free final finish is truly fine line capable and high frequency friendly. It is also bio-compatible due to the omission of phosphor. PallaBond® represents the future in terms of technological capability. 

Another highlight will be our paper presentation on “Soldering Immersion Tin” and its importance for the automotive industry. The paper will be presented by Rick Nichols, Global Product Manager Selective Finishing, and proofs that i-Sn can provide a reliable solderable finish with a long shelf-life and compatibility to realistically challenging production environments. Meet him in Session S31 on Thursday, February 16, from 9 to 10 am.

PallaBond® is a direct electroless palladium / autocatalytic gold surface finish and allows the direct deposition of palladium on copper. It has been designed to achieve maximum fine feature resolution and definition whilst enabling high frequency design. The phosphor and nickel free final finish is optimized to operate at an overall thickness of approximately 200 nm, ideal for very fine lines and spaces. The process enables wire bonding with Cu, Cu Pd, Au and Ag. It is compatible with many new base materials and soldermask types owing to its short deposit time and low temperature needs. 

Atotech is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of specialty chemicals and equipment for the printed circuit board, IC-substrate and semiconductor industries. Visit Atotech at IPC APEX Expo 2017, booth #3651, to discuss the PallaBond® or Stannatech® processes, or just pass by to learn more about our grant portfolio for market leading products, technologies, and services. Product experts will be available to you in San Diego, USA, from February 14 to 16, 2017.
