As the festive seasons draws ever closer we wanted to inform our customers about our Christmas opening hours…
With 50 years of experience in the electronics industry, we’ve encountered every issue electronics manufacturers can face and continually help our customers to find the best solutions.
With our partner, Koki, a global pioneer in the field of soldering, we are proud to offer the most modern, reliable and effective products available. This means that we’re always at the forefront of technological innovation, and can assist with any new problems that arise as the industry develops.
One of Koki’s leading product ranges is its offering of surface mount adhesives. Used to secure and stabilise components prior to or during assembly, it is crucial these products dispense or print precisely, while holding firmly in place once applied. Koki’s adhesives offer excellent viscosity and rheology during application, while remaining incredibly stable during product assembly…
At Fraser Technologies, we have had the opportunity to work with most of the country’s leading aerospace manufacturers to support their component cleaning, degreasing processes, and their electronics manufacturing needs.
In a highly competitive and innovative industry sector, it is no surprise that our aerospace customers demand the best chemistries and technologies that provide high quality results, while also minimising time, cost, and with increasing importance, the environmental impact.
Through the supply of best in class, high performance speciality products, and our industry-specific expertise, we provide customers with bespoke solutions to suit a variety of needs…
At Fraser Technologies, we have 50 years of experience working with the electronics industry, offering the latest, most effective and reliable products on the market. When it comes to soldering, we are proud to be the UK distributor of leading global soldering solutions provider, Koki.
Koki is the best in the business and has been pioneering and manufacturing cutting-edge soldering materials for over 50 years. The Koki range of solder pastes includes products that solve your problems, from pillowing and bridging to poor wetting and voiding.
One of Koki’s latest innovations is S3X70-E160DN – a high-performance, high speed jetting solder paste, offering excellent consistency without slumping. It is halogen free and, crucially, it is approved by Mycronic for use in their range of MY machines… Continue Reading

Solving solder wire challenges with Koki’s 72M series
Similarly to other industrial sectors, electronics manufacturers are always looking for solutions to ongoing issues and more efficient production methods.
One such demand is the need for more cost-effective solder wires. Typically, standard un-leaded solder alloys used for hand soldering wires are very aggressive and ‘eat’ soldering iron tips. As components get smaller due to design and space limitations, soldering iron tips have become more sophisticated and much more expensive…
One of the most significant challenges in the electronics industry is the formation of voids in solder joints. Voiding typically occurs when flux or solvent in the paste becomes trapped in the joint, or paste oxidises, and empty spaces are created within the joint. Too many voids in a solder joint will impact the joint’s reliability, so it’s important this issue is avoided.
If you’re struggling with oxidised pads and components, combat the challenge with Koki’s S3X58-M500C-7 powerful wetting, no-clean solder paste
Most engineers and operators have experienced poor solder wetting – an extremely common challenge in the electronics industry. Poor wetting can be caused by a number of different issues including low paste volume or inconsistent soldering temperatures, but mostly this is due to oxidisation or tarnishing of the solder joints caused by poorly stored or very old components, often referred to as ‘grey’ components…
