Metallurgy as a wide term defines not only smelting and casting steel, but also soldering, tinning, welding, and so on. It is a complicated heavy-duty industry, which includes an array of operations with metal, ore, and other raw materials. Welding and soldering are universal among numerous application fields, they are required to join metal segments and wires. Both of the aforementioned procedures require additional chemical substances termed "fluxes" to improve the quality of metal-joining procedures. We offer a great assortment of fluxes at the most reasonable prices you can find. A flux is a...read more

...special chemical reagent utilized in metal/wire joining. These fluxes have two main functions. The first one is to terminate any oxidic compounds that appear on the surface of the metal. Oxidation is common and inevitable, and it is important because oxides prevent metals from linking together while soldering, weakening or disrupting the bond, or preventing the flow of electricity in wires. The second important function of fluxes, which is directly connected to the first one, is coating the materials with a protective layer that eliminates the possibility of additional oxidation processes that are common in high-temperature conditions. Fluxes may contain organic and inorganic chemical substances, depending on the type and the heat-level regime of the metal-joining process. We offer a selection of top-quality soldering/welding fluxes. Shop with Mega Depot!
