  • Patent number: 4340167
    Abstract: Components can be held down on printed circuit boards by applying compositions comprising a water soluble polymeric compound or mixture of compounds which can be dissolved in water to give a greater than 45% solids content with a viscosity range of about 8 to about 12 poises at about 25.degree. C., a water soluble mono- or polyhydric alcohol, water, a wetting agent, and a water soluble organic acid having a keto oxygen group within 4 carbon atoms of the carboxylic acid group, to the printed circuit board prior to insertion of the components to keep them in place during soldering operations. The mixture can be completely removed after soldering by a water rinse.
