Electronic Component and Products (ECP)

Our solutions to meet the needs of analytical laboratories

Sparked by innovation in the assembly of electronic components, electronics have become smaller, lighter and less expensive. Currently, oxidation reaction, poor wettability and high peak temperature during soldering of printed circuit boards create harm to electronic solder joints. To offset these effects, using nitrogen to inert the atmosphere during soldering has become a globally accepted practice within electronics manufacturing.

Wave Soldering

Why Choose Nitrogen for Your Wave Soldering (or Wave Soldering) Process

  • Improved brazing quality
  • Reduction of slag formation
  • Reduction of flow consumption
  • Time-saving


Reflow Soldering

Why choose nitrogen over air for your reflow soldering process?

  • Improved brazing quality
  • Flexibility in setting the oven
  • Weakly activated solder pastes


What are the advantages of nitrogen for your selective wave soldering process

  • Improved quality of solder joints
  • Reduced oxidation
  • Increased productivity
  • Improved repeatability


Adapting to a fast-evolving market

To stay competitive in today’s market of electronics manufacturing, manufacturers must keep pace with evolving technologies, while reducing costs and navigating the latest regulations. Air Liquide has supported electronics manufacturing actors since the 1990s, with solutions for every step of their processes from assembly through testing, storage and cleaning.

We supply this key regional industry with the high-quality industrial and specialty gases required to improve product quality and flexibility, reduce production cost, and resolve process-related problems. Bulk and cylinder gases are supplied for PCB Assembly, Electronics Packaging and Thermal testing operations.

Comprehensive solutions, equipment and audits

Our Nexelia for Electronics Manufacturing offer is a range of all-in-one solutions for the electronics manufacturing industry. While its main feature is nitrogen supply, it extends to application equipment and audit services. These are an important step as they assure our solutions best reflect our customers’ unique processes. Using the audit system, we are able to:

  • Measure the optimal inerting atmosphere inside the reflow oven
  • Ensure quality and safety with verification of the atmosphere in the oven, and conduct leakage checks
  • Optimize performance, including the quality of soldering and nitrogen consumption
