Alpha to Present LED Technical Paper at IPC India Technical Conference 2015

Somerset, NJ – August 27, 2015 – Alpha, the world leader in the production of electronic soldering and bonding materials, will present a LED technical paper at IPC India Technical Conference 2015 from September 10 – 11, 2015 Pragathi Maidan, New Delhi, India.

The paper, co-authored with Multek, a global supplier of rigid and flexible printed circuits, explores how enabling the use of PET flexible circuits can provide significant system cost benefits compared to either FR4 rigid boards or Polyimide flexible circuits. In this study, Alpha utilizes its new generation low-temperature solder paste, Lumet™ P53 with SBX02 alloy to provide low-temperature LED package on PET substrate reflow capability, which enables the use of PET flex substrates.

Richard Puthota, Director of Business Development and Technical Support for Alpha – India, will be presenting the paper titled “Enabling the Use of PET Flexible Substrates for LED Lighting Applications” at the IPC India in New Delhi.
