New to the Game, LOCTITE's GC 3W!

Following the lead on the greatly successful temperature-stable LOCTITE GC 10, Henkel has hit a second home run with the first ever water-soluble temperature-stable solder paste, the LOCTITE GC 3W!

The new fully halide- and halogen-free formulation combines the properties of high-activity flux performance and temperature stability – characteristics that, until now, have been mutually exclusive.

The temperature stability of LOCTITE GC 3W delivers similar benefits as its no-clean counterpart, LOCTITE GC 10, 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. Stencil life and abandon times are superior to previous-generation water wash formulas and storage stability is extended to provide game-changing, water-washable performance.                                                                                         Spec Sheet
