ALPHA® Cored Wire

ALPHA® Cored Solder Wire sets a new standard in soldering performance and electro-chemical reliability.

ALPHA® has a range of flux cored solder wires for component attach, rework and touch-up soldering for through-hole and surface mount technologies.  The range includes no-clean, water-soluble and activated rosin fluxes in a variety of solder alloys.  ALPHA® provides flux cored solder wires with the highest performance for hand soldering and robotic soldering processes, including drag soldering and laser soldering. All products are manufactured to ISO 12224-1 specification and test methods. Within our extensive range, you will find an ALPHA® flux cored solder wire that meets your specific needs.

ALPHA® Telecore HF-850 cored solder wire was developed to comply with the IEC and JPCA halogen content specifications, complying with the recent trend for environmental protection.   Telecore HF-850 also meets the highest industry standards for electro-chemical reliability and is very fast wetting with low flux spatter, setting the new standard in performance and reliability.  Its clear non-tacky residue does not require cleaning, and its excellent joint appearance allows for easy inspection.  Telecore HF-850 also generates a low amount of fumes, thus creating a clean and operator friendly working environment.

Telecore HF-850 is available in the standard SAC305 alloy, other industry standard lead free and lead containing alloys and in the ALPHA® SACX Plus® low Ag alloys that offer excellent value versus the higher cost of higher-Ag alloys.
