Perancea Up & Running On RoHS Compliant Product Finishing

With RoHS compliance hot on the agenda, Perancea is announcing that it has fully upgraded its production processes to provide Bright Acid Tin as a fully compliant finish for its RFI/EMI screening, shielding and enclosure solutions. Bright Acid Tin finishing is available now, replacing Hot Tin Dipping, and also providing a cosmetically superior finish with mechanical advantages.

Bright Acid Tin finishing is available now, as standard, for custom and higher specification screening, shielding and enclosure products. The changeover to the RoHS compliant finish has inevitably resulted in a small additional premium as the process involved is more costly but higher in specification.

Perancea’s Bright Acid Tin provides a good commercial grade finish for steel RFI/EMI shielding applications. It delivers a solderable, lead-free metal plating in compliance with RoHS and also meets green and environmentally friendly legislative requirements.

The Perancea process is available to three main specifications all of which are ideal for soldering. The good commercial grade provides a nominal plating thickness of 10 microns. To meet BS1872: 1984 service condition No 2 requirements for indoor with some condensation applications, plating can be provided to a minimum thickness of 10 microns and for Def Stan 03-8 Issue 1 specifications, plating is to a minimum average thickness of 25 microns. The process uses lessthan 0.1% lead, mercury, cadmium, hex chromium or polybrominated diphenyl ethers.

The Bright Acid Tin process provides a uniformly bright finish with excellent solderability and fusing characteristics even after long periods of storage. The finish is also an excellent conductor and provides protection against corrosion. The deposited tin plate is ductile, bright and attractive.

Perancea’s RFI/EMI metal enclosures and screening strips are available now with the Bright Acid Tin finish in a wide range of designs and sizes for a host of applications from board and component level to sub-assemblies and equipment.

Perancea is a highly experienced mechanical engineering company specialising in the production of RFI/EMI shielding and other enclosures for the electronics and associated industries. The company, with its expertise, is also able to provide custom shielding and enclosure services to meet the needs of the broad range of application requirements from mechanical to electrical and electronics engineering applications.
