SANTA 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 failure.
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.
Continued 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 segment."
Existing "good" lead-free solutions may increase production costs by as
much as 200 percent.
Dr. 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.
