Decent hi-tec paste – LodeStar Soldering Paste (50g) Reviews

posted by cmalt on 08/25/2007 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Some other products here are listed as paste, this stuff is actually paste while others are flux. Gives a good solid solder joint even at sub 500C, flux and solder all in one makes for strong connections even when no mechanical connection is available.
Cons:
Doesn't have a packing/expiration date.
Other:
Being paste (solder+flux compound) it should be refrigerated to avoid separation. Considering they want more than 40 bucks for a 1 oz syringe (plus shipping) to get this kind of stuff elsewhere it is a pretty decent deal.
Bottomline:
If you are working with SMT as a hobby paste can speed up the process. If you have never used it, this is cheap and can give you a great idea what it's all about.
