Environmental Compliance
Asaleadingglobalsupplierofelectroniccomponentsandanenvironmentallyconsciouscompany,KEMETcontinually
aspirestoimprovetheenvironmentaleffectsofourmanufacturingprocessesandourfinishedelectroniccomponents.
InEurope(RoHSDirective)andinsomeothergeographicalareassuchasChina(ChinaRoHS),legislationhasbeenenacted
topreventorotherwiselimittheuseofcertainhazardousmaterials,includinglead(Pb),inelectronicequipment.KEMET
monitorslegislationgloballytoensurecomplianceandendeavorstoadjustourmanufacturingprocessesand/orelectronic
componentsasmayberequiredbyapplicablelaw.
Formilitary,medical,automotive,andsomecommercialapplications,theuseoflead(Pb)intheterminationisnecessary
and/orrequiredbydesign.KEMETiscommittedtocommunicatingRoHScompliancetoourcustomers.Informationrelated
toRoHScompliancewillbeprovidedindatasheetsandusingspecificidentifiersonthepackaginglabels.
AllKEMETpowerfilmcapacitorsareRoHScompliant.
Materials & Environment
The selection of raw materials that KEMET uses for the production of its electronic components is the result of extensive
experience.KEMETdirectsspecificattentiontowardenvironmentalprotection.KEMETselectsitssuppliersaccordingto
ISO9001standardsandperformsstatisticalanalysesonrawmaterialsbeforeacceptanceforuseinmanufacturingour
electroniccomponents.Allmaterialsare,tothebestofKEMET’sknowledge,non-toxicandfreefromcadmium;mercury;
chromeandcompounds;polychlorinetriphenyl(PCB);bromideandchlorinedioxinsbromurateclorurate;CFCandHCFC;
andasbestos.
Dissipation Factor
Dissipationfactorisacomplexfunctioninvolvedwithcapacitorinefficiency.Thetgδmayvaryupanddownwithincreased
temperature. For more information, refer to Performance Characteristics.
Sealing
Hermetically Sealed Capacitors
As the temperature increases, the pressure inside the capacitor increases. If the internal pressure is high enough, it can
causeabreachinthecapacitor.Suchabreachcanresultinleakage,impregnation,fillingfluid,ormoisturesusceptibility.
Barometric Pressure
Thealtitudeatwhichhermeticallysealedcapacitorsareoperatedcontrolsthecapacitor'svoltagerating.Asthebarometric
pressuredecreases,thesusceptibilitytoterminalarc-overincreases.Non-hermeticcapacitorscanbeaffectedbyinternal
stressesduetopressurechanges.Theseeffectscanbeintheformofcapacitancechanges,dielectricarc-over,and/orlow
insulationresistance.Altitudecanalsoaffectheattransfer.Heatthatisgeneratedinanoperationcannotbedissipated
properly, and high RI2 losses and eventual failure can result.

Soldering Process
The implementation of the RoHS directive has resulted in the selection of SnAuCu (SAC) alloys, or SnCu alloys, as the primary
soldermaterial.Thishasincreasedtheliquidustemperaturefrom183°CforaSnPbeutecticalloyto217–221°Cfornewalloys.
Asaresult,theheatstresstothecomponents,eveninwavesoldering,hasincreasedconsiderablyduetohigherpre-heatand
wavetemperatures.Polypropylenecapacitorsareespeciallysensitivetoheat(themeltingpointofpolypropyleneis160–170°C).
Wavesolderingcanbedestructive,especiallyformechanicallysmallpolypropylenecapacitors(withleadspacingof5–15mm),
andgreatcaremustbetakenduringsoldering.TherecommendedsolderprofilesfromKEMETshouldbeused.ContactKEMET
withanyquestions.Ingeneral,thewavesolderingcurvefromIECPublication61760–1Edition2servesasasolidguidelinefor
successful soldering. See Figure 1.
Reflowsolderingisnotrecommendedforthrough-holefilmcapacitors.Exposingcapacitorstoasolderingprofileinexcessofthe
recommended limits may result in degradation or permanent damage to the capacitors.
Do not place the polypropylene capacitor through an adhesive curing oven to cure resin for surface mount components. Insert
through-holepartsaftercuringthesurfacemountparts.ContactKEMETtodiscusstheactualtemperatureprofileintheoven,if
through-hole components must pass through the adhesive curing process. A maximum two soldering cycles is recommended.
Allowtimeforthecapacitorsurfacetemperaturetoreturntonormalbeforethesecondsolderingcycle.
Manual Soldering Recommendations
Following is the recommendation for manual
soldering with a soldering iron.
The soldering iron tip temperature should
besetat350°C(+10°Cmaximum)withthe
soldering duration not to exceed more than 3
seconds.

Selective Soldering Recommendations
Selectivedipsolderingisavariationofreflowsoldering.Inthismethod,theprintedcircuitboardwiththrough-hole
componentstobesolderedispre-heatedandtransportedoverthesolderbath,asinnormalflowsoldering,withouttouching
thesolder.Whentheboardisoverthebath,itisstopped.Pre-designedsolderpotsareliftedfromthebathwithmolten
solder,onlyattheplacesoftheselectedcomponents,andpressedagainstthelowersurfaceoftheboardtosolderthe
components.
Thetemperatureprofileforselectivesolderingissimilartothedoublewaveflowsolderingoutlinedinthisdocument.
However,insteadoftwobaths,thereisonlyonewithatimefrom3–10seconds.Inselectivesoldering,theriskof
overheatingisgreaterthanindoublewaveflowsoldering,andgreatcaremustbetakensothatthepartsdonotoverheat.
