Electronics manufacturing

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.

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. Gas supply modes include bulk deliveries, cylinders and on-site production technologies.
