Ferro Corp.: RoHS-Compliant Materials

Ferro Corp.’s Electronic Material Systems recently introduced several new products that expand its line of RoHS-compliant materials. Ferro has developed five new silver-based conductor pastes and is the exclusive distributor of new Sumitomo(R) resistor pastes in Europe and North America. All products are lead- and cadmium-free.

The new conductors and resistors broaden Ferro’s range of matched material systems for hybrid integrated circuit (IC) applications to offer cost-effective performance over a broad range of system requirements while providing RoHS compliance. Ferro has also introduced new lead- and cadmium-free glass powders for a wide variety of applications, and glass pastes for overglazes and sealing glasses.

Ferro is the sole distributor in Europe and North American Free Trade Association (NAFTA) countries of Sumitomo Metal Mining’s new RG-A series of lead- and cadmium-free resistor thick film pastes. The RG-A series is a state-of-the-art system for making environmentally friendly chip resistors. The pastes are available in a wide range of resistances and exhibit the same electrical characteristics as the conventional SMMR-U pastes.
