For the rigors of the soldering process, it is our suggestion and choice to utilize one of two types of hi-temp composite material. Epoxy Composites have a proven success of longevity while Polyester Composites are preferred if your flux is a high Halide, No-Clean flux. In the vast majority of applications, the Epoxy composite pallets should give you the highest cycle life. Effectively, this number is impossible to predict with much accuracy due to the wide variety of fluxes applied and the even wider variations of process parameters.
We manufacture our pallets from the most advanced and proven epoxy and polyester composites, including materials for lead free applications . G-10 and FR-4; Plastics: Delrin and Ultim, PEEK, Teflon; Metals: Aluminum, Titanium and Stainless Steel; Graphite, and Glass Ceramics.
The use of these material either alone or together have been utilized to effectively solve many PCB manufacturing process problems.
Stone Mountain Tool will utilize any material a customer may prefer.
