    Real Deal solder paste! Get it! Get 10!

    posted by TrinityTrip on 07/23/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It is the real stuff! Tiny solder balls suspended in flux. Anything remotely like this costs a fortune. Works perfectly. Place a few smears or blobs on your PCB and stick your components down and solder away.
    Cons:
    Flux has a strong odour when soldering. Could be toxic but if you blow while soldering it's no problem.

    Great low heat solder paste

    posted by ABCellers on 01/22/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a great low heat solder paste. It melts at approximately 183 °C (361 °F). That is very good for avoiding the thermal breakdown point of your electronic components. It flows quickly and evenly, no bridging on integrated circuits. The metal content by...
    Cons:
    The flux component is not "no clean". This is why I gave it a 4 on "ease of use" and "build qualiy" ratings. But for the price ...

    Cheap and works, but reserved to experts

    posted by Otatiaro on 01/19/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It works. It's a soldering paste (not flux). Leaded. When used pure it's not quite easy to use but just add some home made flux (based on colophony violin rosin found here) and it becomes more sticky and easier to use.
    Cons:
    This is not something everybody can use. You need a minimum of tools and experience to use it well. A very good soldering iron ...

    very good paste

    posted by vilmas on 01/14/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    If you need paste, this works. It's inexpensive. It's probably more than enough to last most casual hobbyists for a very long time. (Most people will probably lose this bottle before the product actually runs out.)
    Cons:
    -great amount of product, will last for a while -not much fumes -takes a while to evaporate,so you won't need to add more flu...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Thick solder paste that works lika a charm. Easy to use and apply. 63% tin and 37% lead (plus additional flux, to form a paste) Just dip the solderpoints in it, hold in place and gently touch with well heated soldering iron. Reduces heat transfer to compone...
    Cons:
    But...none!
