BARBARA, Calif., Sept. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Interface
Sciences Corporation ( www.interfacesciences.com )
today announced the launch of its RoHS-compliant,
cost-effective solution to printed circuit board
Because of the Restriction of Hazardous Substances
(RoHS) mandate, printed circuit board manufacturers
must stop using lead solder by July 2006. Use of lead-free
solders leads to catastrophic board failures caused
by related conductive anodic filamentation (CAF) problems.
Printed circuit boards are used with memory, motherboard,
graphics cards and many other types of devices. RoHS
mandates transition to lead-free solders, which will
affect most electronic devices including all IT and
telecom equipment and all consumer electronics.
use of conventional materials will cause reliability
of medium- and high-performance electronic products
to drop to unacceptable levels. Interface Sciences'
proprietary application solves circuit board failure.
CEO Mitch Hawkins said, "Our patented
Self-Assembled Monolayer (SAM) nanotechnology provides
a far-reaching and cost-effective solution to the
$3 billion medium- and high-performance board market
Existing "good" lead-free
solutions may increase production costs by as much
as 200 percent.
Damon Brink, ISC's chief science and technology
officer said, "Interface Science's solution leads
to a stronger, more reliable product at a fraction
of the cost, while enabling low-cost resin and material
systems to be used in high-performance boards assembled
with lead-free solder."
The Company's proprietary technology uses dense
molecular arrangement on the nanoscale in addition
to the use of unconventional molecules.
Interface Sciences Corporation is an early-stage
nanotechnology commercialization company holding
platform technologies that were developed by a major
government laboratory. The company's emphasis is
on materials and surface innovation at the nanoscale.
It controls several hundred technological applications
in fields as varied as oil spill remediation, fiber
composites and composite structures, computer circuit
boards, MEMS, sports equipment, nanoparticle functionalization
and paper treatments.
