Packaging Quantities and Part Numbers are Changing on October 1 2016 of Kester EM 828 Solder Paste
Dear Valued Kester Solder Customers,
On August 1st, Janel received notice of a change to the packaging quantities of Kester EM828 Solder Paste in cartridges to 500 grams. Traditionally, cartridges have contained 600 grams of material. However, for this particular water soluble paste, the volume of 600 grams is near capacity of the cartridge. In some cases, this has caused issues with the plunger and cap replacement. Both Kester Solder and Janel, Inc. | Janel Online continually strive to maintain the delivery of quality items to our customers and to improve upon our efforts, Kester has decided to change the cartridge quantity to 500 grams of material.
To minimize disruption to our customer base, the quantity in the cartridge is the only change. The EM828 raw materials, manufacturing process, and cartridge remain the same. Below we have provided the summary of changes of the part numbers, which will be implemented to avoid confusion in the future. Please note, during this change, the price per gram of material will remain the same. However, one box will not contain 5kg and one carton will now be 20 kg.
The change will be implemented by Kester on October 1, 2016; when the old part numbers will no longer be available. For the replacement part numbers, please see the information provided below.
