Solder Alloys & Fluxes
Solder alloy composition is important when choosing the right solder for the metal to metal joint. Choosing an alloy with similar conductive and strength material properties as the base metal will reduce the need to compensate for a weak joint. Melted solder is attracted to metal but will not stick easily to metal with oils and oxidization. Flux melts at lower temperatures than solder alloys and is used to coat the area to be soldered and guarantee a clean joint. Flux helps draw solder into a joint and makes it easier to create a capillary action. Shop our online selection or contact us today for a custom quote.
