Tin-silver electroplating for leadframe and other applications
RFQ: Dear ladies and gentlemen,
I am looking for tin-silver electroplating solutions for leadframe applications. Is there someone who knows who produces it? If you give me your advice, it would be highly appreciated.
Thank youChi-Ho Yoon

A. Chi-Ho, I am sure you mean tin/silver, it may not exist. You are certain an alloy of tin/lead or pure silver will not meet your specification?Bill Hemp

A. A recent publication here in the U.S. indicates that a patent application was made for this kind of bath by Dipsol Chemicals Co., Ltd. of Tokyo Japan. The solution is a near neutral pH bath that operates slightly on the acid side.
Hope this is helpful.
A. Dear mr. yoon,
Are you looking for Sn/Ag alloy plating solution for PPF (Pre-Plated Frame) application or Pb-free application in semiconductor packaging industry ?
Now, in case of Pb-free application, you can put your hands on Sn/Bi, Sn and Sn/Cu alloy solutions in Korea.
Sn/Zn is also available for your research purposes.
Sn/Ag solution can be made but the market volume presently does not permit developing and making it.
What is your target alloy composition of Sn/Ag?Nelson NK Key

Hi Richard. Cousin Chi-Ho has requested electroplating solutions rather than hot-dipping solutions. I don't know whether his particular application demands electroplating for any reason, but even if so, other readers may be interested to know that hot-dipping is an alternative. Thanks for introducing the idea.

Technic has just introduced a high speed tin/silver plating process for your application. The alloy (90 to 98% tin, balance silver, depending on application) is extremely uniform over a wide variety of plating parameters (current density, temperature, etc.), and the deposit finish is semi bright. Please contact me and I will get you in touch with our Korean division.
