Best-in-class Printing

When it comes to printing performance, there is simply nothing better than LOCTITE GC 10. In impartial third-party testing, LOCTITE GC 10 was proven to provide the absolute best paste transfer efficiency and paste-on-pad material volumes for challenging, miniaturized component types. Plus, exceptionally long abandon times of up to 24 hours, a staggering stencil life of up to 72 hours and zero start-up time deliver ease-of-use, higher yields and improved profitability.

 

Consider that close to 70 percent of defects originate in the printing process and it’s clear that making the proper solder paste selection is essential for defect reduction. Paste is typically chosen based on the particle size requirements for the smallest component type, the alloy needed to satisfy reliability levels and a flux suited for the application technology. This selection process often means that different product assemblies will require a manufacturer to conduct multiple solder paste qualifications. Now, there’s a single flux formulation that can meet all assembly demands, from miniaturized components for handheld products to high-reliability devices for automotive applications.

 

LOCTITE GC 10 does it all…

… and allows qualification of one flux platform for supply chain simplification and the industry’s best print performance.
