MacDermid Alpha Launches ALPHA OM-565 HRL3, Next Generation, Low Melt Point Solder PasteMarch 10, 2022 | MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions, a global supplier of integrated solutions from our Circuitry, Assembly and Semiconductor divisions that provides unmatched capabilities in electronics design and manufacturing, announces the launch of ALPHA OM-565 HRL3, next-generation, high-reliability low-temperature solder paste formulated for a broad range of assemblies to mitigate warpage induced defects in temperature-sensitive chip-scale packages.
ALPHA OM-565 HRL3 solder paste is designed to enable target reflow temperatures of 175 °C with superior wettability to minimize post reflow defects such as Non-Wet-Open (NWO) and Head-in-Pillow (HiP). The HRL3 alloy offers superior thermomechanical and drop shock performance compared to existing low-temperature solutions. The ALPHA OM-565 chemistry enhances electrochemical performance over existing low-temperature solders, providing excellent compatibility in contact rework applications with ALPHA tested cored wire and rework fluxes.
“The HRL3 alloy represents MacDermid Alpha’s commitment to providing innovative low-temperature alloy solutions to meet next-generation electronic assembly needs”, comments Paul Salerno, Global Portfolio Manager, SMT. “ALPHA OM-565 HRL3 enables lower peak reflow temperatures, minimizes common warpage induced defects, and enhances mechanical reliability in assemblies requiring larger, thinner form factor package designs that are becoming common in the latest handheld and computing applications.”
The ALPHA HRL3 alloy is also available in solid solder formats including bar solder and wire for selective and dip soldering processes.

Productronica 2023 played host to the IPC World Hand Soldering Competition, bringing talented regional solder champions from all over the globe to compete for the title of World Champion. Each competitor was given sixty minutes to assemble a complex printed circuit board with their performance judged in accordance with IPC-A-610 Class 3 criteria. Each competitor’s efforts were rated on the merits of the results achieved, scored on the quality of the assembly process, the electrical functionality of the assembly and the speed at which the assembly was produced.
