Tech sheet says that sealed container should not exceed 7 days....I have a container that has been out for nine days, what do you think????? Has anyone any similar experience or pointers ??

I see what you mean. Personally I would try a bit of the paste and see what you think prior to production run. If I were you I would get another brand in there. something that offers a "slightly" longer life? I have used "out of date" solder paste many times and experienced few if any problems. I guess it's like the experation date on food. Recommended but not exact.

We agree with an earlier poster. Try it and carefully observe the results.

We agree with earlier comments. Consider a paste with a more current design. WS709, while SOA in it's day and still a very good paste, is dated.

Dave,

When you say "we", who do you mean ? The company you work for ?

Just curious. Thnx, Sr.

Never mind then.

Must be the Borg collective you are speaking of.
