Interplex, a leading provider of customized application solutions, has announced today, the availability of the new IndiCoat™ – a whisker mitigation electroplating technology.
Interplex has completed accelerated life testing of IndiCoat™. Featuring the new acidic indium electroplating product designed to produce a uniform satin-matte indium finish that has low friction, excellent electrical and thermal conductivity, low melting point, and the capability of forming strong welding with many metals and alloys.
Tin whiskers pose electrical reliability risks in the form of potential short circuits. IndiCoat™ was developed as a whisker mitigating plating chemistry to supplement or replace existing tin-based chemistry.
IndiCoat™ was introduced in Interplex’s customizable Press-Fit components, creating a unique application to meet the challenging demands of the automotive market.
“Our advanced IndiCoat™ electroplating technology has enhanced the reliability of interconnectors for the automotive connector parts. With over 0.5 billion parts shipped at the initial launch, we are confident about our anti-whiskering technology for the automotive industry”, says C.Nantha Kumar, Vice President, Global Operations – Plating.
IndiCoat™ is available in high-speed reel-to-reel plating for large production volumes and supports plating on thin and thick layers.
