Henkel LOCTITE introduces GC 10 - this Game Changer is the first-ever temperature stable solder paste

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

  • No refrigeration
  • Improved stability
  • Improved printing
  • Improved reflow

Improved Printing Improved Stability Improved Reflow Improved Paste Management
Abandon time: 8-24 hours On-line stencil stability: 3 days at 80% RH Excellent coalescence for 0201, 01005, and 0.3 mm pitch Superior on-line paste utilization
Stencil life: 16-72 hours Paste stability: 12x over conventional After 3 days at 80% RH, zero dewetting on long soak Eliminates end-of-day paste scrapping
High yield paste volumes with lowest aspect ratio Elevated temperature stability: 100x over conventional Minimal hot slump at 182°C Eliminates refrigerated warehouse storage
Industry leader in paste-transfer efficiency Improved shipping logistics management Best in class cosmetic appearance for Pb-free solder joints Eliminates cold pack, dry ice, and overnight shipping
    Exceptional wetting for long, hot reflow profiles
