LOCTITE GC 10 - Solder paste for room temperature storage
In what is a true market breakthrough, Henkel has developed the first-ever temperature stable solder paste. LOCTITE GC 10 is stable at 26.5 °C for one year and at temperatures of up to 40 °C for one month, providing benefits throughout the logistics and operations chain, while still offering exceptional printability and reflow performance.




LOCTITE GC 3W - Water wash solder paste for room temperature storage

The market’s first-ever temperature stable water wash solder paste, LOCTITE GC 3W, is fully halide- and halogen-free, and provides exceptional results in aqueous cleaning systems without the addition of saponifiers or co-solvents. Post-reflow residue removal is fast and easy, and the cleaning window has dramatically expanded, allowing manufacturers the flexibility to clean boards seven days after assembly.

Game Changing Technology

“The novel technology utilized in this formulation delivers exceptional performance on all levels: our solder paste is temperature stable, offers best-in-class reflow performance and exceeds all industry standard reliability requirements.”

“Outside of its excellent process performance, which is always our top priority, the sheer simplicity and cost savings realized by LOCTITE GC 10’s hassle-free material management are incredible. There is no taking it out of the refrigerator hours before a shift, no complex labeling and, best of all, start-up time is zero. We just take it off the shelf, put it on the stencil and start printing boards. We’ve left LOCTITE GC 10 on the stencil for more than eight hours and it was as creamy as when we first opened the jar – no kneading required. Plus, we can do away with expensive overnight shipping of solder paste and the worry about temperature exposure. With LOCTITE GC 10, we have a lot more latitude and that translates to a more efficient operation.”
