Efficient screening ensures that we consistently meet IPC– STD specifications. We can also customize size distributions to your specifications.
Building on our experience in packaging ultrapure metals (6N and 7N purity), we can package our powders in an inert atmosphere, ensuring low oxygen levels and a long shelf life.
As “faster, smaller, lighter” continues to drive the miniaturization of the electronics industry, our powders are primed to help you meet current and future demands. 5N Plus Micro Powders processes are specifically designed to operate efficiently and with high yields, providing the solder paste market with Type 4 to Type 8 powders.
5N Plus is a global market leader in the production of low melting point alloys. This now enables us to offer the Pb-free alloys listed below as ultrafine powders.
Please contact us if you need an alloy not mentioned above, or would like to develop custom alloy compositions and particle size distributions.
5N Plus has served the thin-film solar industry for years, supplying high-purity metals and alloys for CdTe and CIGS photovoltaic panels. In addition to the CdTe, CdS and ZnTe powders our parent company produces, 5N Plus Micro Powders produces proprietary CuGa, CuIn, and CuInGa powders for the CIGS platform.
5N Plus Micro Powders produces several Ag-based alloys for this market, as customers develop new applications to leverage the finer particles size and custom alloying services we offer. We have the capability of producing powders with melting points up to 1200 °C.
5N Plus Micro Powders is targeting this emerging market by expanding its capabilities with high-temperature melting and atomizing processes.
Our powder production site is integrated with our Montreal manufacturing facility, where some of our high-purity metals and compounds are refined and purified up to 99.99999% (7N). This means we have excellent in-house analytical services equipped with state-of-the-art instruments dedicated to material characterization. In addition, we collaborate with leading Montreal universities to enhance our R&D and product development.
The coverage on human rights violations in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and environmental issues resulting from the mining of minerals, including tantalum (Ta), tungsten (W), tin (Sn), and gold (Au) has caused wide public concern.
At 5N Plus, not only do we comply with all national and other applicable laws and regulations, we also actively promote initiatives for managing resources responsibly and remain the environmental leader within our industry by minimizing the impact of our operations and products on the environment. Regarding responsible sourcing of raw materials used to produce our specialty metal and chemical products, we do not believe they originate from the DRC and its adjoining countries, based on currently available information.
