Can I ? 😀
It is what I currently have plenty of lying around and, well… it says
S-Sn97-Cu3 at composition
If not, could I use regular solder wire, coat the SMT pads with it, apply flux afterwards, place the SMD part and hold it into place, then gradually apply hot air to it ?
edit The package I am looking to solder in this way is a no leads type. Sorry, forgot to mention.
edit2 Found this paste over here. It has the same binder and the same flux/binder ratio as the one that I have. So it would appear that all that remains is the flux. I do not know what it is, but on my flask it says it contains
zinc chloride, it thoroughly warns against inhaling, ingesting, eye and skin contact. Also there are some writings:
S 1-2/S 20/S 26/S 36-39
I wonder if the regular electronic parts solder paste has any warnings against skin/eye contact, inhaling and ingesting.
