What do Taiyo America and Aerospace Have in Common?
By: Kate Han
Did you know Taiyo America solder mask products are used for Aerospace applications? If you didn’t know this, where have you been?
When it comes to printed circuit boards (PCBs), the Aerospace industry always demands the highest technical performance, reliability, and extreme environmental tolerance. Taiyo America's solder mask continues to meet each of these requirements time and time again.
Besides the standard IPC SM-840E requirements, the Aerospace industry requires low outgassing of the solder mask. You may already know this, but low outgassing is critical so that optics and sensors are not contaminated by chemical condenses and deposits. Taiyo America has a variety of specialty solder mask products that pass the NASA outgassing requirements as well as via fill and legend ink products.
Airline travel is very important to many of us salespeople to cover so much territory in a short period of time. So, it’s no question that we need air travel to be as safe as possible. Aerospace is one of those industries where mistakes can be catastrophic. Thus, the Aerospace industry needs their suppliers to make robust material to support the PCB manufacturers. Because of this, we have solder mask product for high-density interconnect, rigid, rigid-flex and flex with the highest quality of materials to meet their requirements of functionality and most importantly safety. Some of us have had the pleasure to ride on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner which was made with multiple Taiyo America solder mask products such as PSR-4000 MP, PSR-4000 BN, and THP-100 DX1.
We are proud that the Mars Rover Opportunity, also known as MER-B or MER-1 and nicknamed “Oppy”, was made with multiple Taiyo products as well. For solder mask it has PSR-4000 BN, MP and LDI(US) as well as THP-100 DX1 for filling the vias and lastly IJSR-4000 MW300 legend ink. So, Taiyo is not only number 1 in the world for solder mask but also in the galaxy.
If we can create a solder mask product that makes you feel safe flying or traveling all the way to Mars, we definitely have a solder mask product to meet your industry’s needs.
We are here to exceed your expectations and welcome any challenges you put forth for us. To protect PCBs and make sure it runs efficiently is our business. Our business is to protect PCBs and make sure it maintains its functionality in any real-world environment.
