with some minute surface mounted parts that seemed to prefer
to stick to my tweezers rather than stay in place on the circuit

I got this from Radiospares, or as it's known these days "RS
It arrived with a sheaf of paperwork explaining the dangers expected

involved in its use. There were 35, mostly generated by the EEC.
There are others also. For example the glue meets ROHS requirements.
Nothing alas on its efficiency and usability.
For those interested here's
a list, much as they are referenced in the eight page document
(leaving out repetitions of which there are many). Does Brexit
mean that all the references, or a good many of them will need
to be changed?
