TRESKY Soldering using formic acid vapor in combination with nitrogen (HCOOH + N2) provides advantages in assembly and connection technology for applications in optoelectronics and photonics. Formic acid delivers a reliable reduction of oxides with complete avoidance of flux. The use of formic acid also ensures a well-wettable surface and thus creating suitable conditions for demanding soldering processes. The module is used for eutectic soldering and thermocompression bonding, for example with indium. In all bonding processes, nitrogen is enriched with formic acid (HCOOH) using a so-called bubbler. The nitrogen-formic acid vapor mixture is fed into the process chamber in a controlled manner and extracted.
