    Hi,

    What is solder tack time? I was looking at solder paste and it states
    that it has a tack time of 4-8 hours.

    Thanks!

    That's how long the paste will stay gooey, before it dries out. So
    once you paste a board, you should place all the parts and run it
    through the reflow oven to solder it within 4-8 hours, 4 to be safe.
