The SLK's were coming on the market just as ROHS regulations were getting off the ground. The new solders need quite a bit more energy to get to liquid state. They also don't flow as well.
Your K40 board has an environmental protective coating on that is surprisingly heat resistant. You do need a good sized Iron 90 Watts or so and a broad chisel tip to get it going. Scraping the coatings off with a scalpel will help.
