Kester will be represented through our German sales partners, ADL Prozesstechnik UG (booth # 7-426) and EURO TOOL GmbH (booth # 7-520), at SMT Hybrid Packaging 2016, which will take place April 26-28 at the Exhibition Centre in Nuremberg, Germany.


At both booths attendees will have the opportunity to meet with the Kester sales team and learn more about Kester’s new products, including the recently launched NP545 a zero-halogen, lead-free, no-clean solder paste with a six-month unrefrigerated shelf life; NP505-HR a zero-halogen, lead-free, no-clean solder paste formula developed specifically for high-reliability applications; and NF372-TB a zero-halogen, no-clean, low solids liquid flux designed to withstand long dwell times and high preheat temperatures needed in thick board assemblies. For the Kester will also debut our newest product, SELECT-10™ Selective Soldering Flux. SELECT-10 is a zero-halogen no-clean liquid flux designed to withstand long dwell times and high preheat temperatures. Sustained activity within the flux allows for good barrel fill in challenging applications, such as reflowed copper OSP boards or with difficult to solder components.
