S-Bond was developed between 1995 – 2005 during which the materials and process technology has progressed to encompass the joining of most metals, semiconductors, ceramics and many composites of metals/ceramics. Key to the success of S-Bond active solders are they contain combinations of active metals such as titanium with rare earths such as cerium. These very active solders permit fluxless joining and eliminates the need for Ni or Cu plating before solder joining. SBT has also developed methods to actively solder bond and hermetically seal ceramics such as Al2O3, sapphire, quartz and zirconia.

We would appreciate if you would share this blog and our website with your colleagues and customers, as S-Bond is an excellent solution for many dissimilar materials bonding applications.
