Underfilm technology uses pre-formed thermoplastic to edge-bond BGA/CSP/LGA and other packages to the PCB. This helps to improve solder ball/joint and shock-drop reliability without the need to dispense from a syringe like traditional underfill. PLACE-N-BONDTM Underfilm comes packaged in Tape and Reel and can be seamlessly integrated on existing SMT assembly lines, where the Underfilm strips can be picked and placed with a custom nozzle.

Traditional underfill can encapsulate the entire gap between the component and PCB, whereas PLACE-N-BONDTM , the alternative underfill solution is ideally placed along the corners of the component as that is a frequent area of stress on solder joints. The edge-bonding and gap-fill occurs during the reflow process; no secondary cure is required. PLACE-N-BONDTM Underfilm can be custom-designed for many applications and has numerous sizes readily available. It’s alternative, Underfill, typically has a shelf life of 2 years and needs to be kept in cold storage, PLACE-N-BONDTM can be stored at room temperature and has a 10-year shelf life. Underfill is not capable of being re-worked; Alltemated’s PLACE-N-BONDTM Underfilm is 100% re-workable.
