Henkel changes the game again new, innovative materials to debut at APEX 2016
Since its introduction at last year’s APEX event, the global adoption of Loctite® GC 10 temperature stable solder paste and its excellent in-process performance have been unprecedented. At APEX 2016, Henkel Adhesive Technologies will highlight the success of this ground-breaking material and showcase its new water soluble counterpart, Loctite GC 3W – another game-changer for the electronics market. Show delegates are invited to visit Henkel in booth #1814 to learn more about its market-leading solder products, as well as brand new developments in Technomelt® encapsulants and Liqui-Form® thermal interface materials.
Underpinned by the formulation breakthrough of Loctite GC 10, Loctite GC 3W delivers similar temperature stability characteristics, but does so in a water washable formula for high reliability applications that require residue-free assemblies. The new material combines high-activity flux performance and temperature stability at 26.5°C for six months and at 40°C for one month, which is unlike any other water soluble paste on the market. A long stencil life of more than eight hours and wide cleaning window that allows residue removal as late as seven days after assembly, Loctite GC 3W offers assembly specialists maximum process flexibility and excellent performance.
