SHOPPING INDEX

Flux allows solder to bond to copper foil or lead. Good flux will create a solid bond with a minimum of unpleasantness. Both paste and liquid fluxes work well on lead, foil, zinc, brass and steel. All work well with Lead Free Solders.

CANFIELD SOLDER-MATE SOELIC LIQUID FLUX

Bristles are trimmed to a 3/4" length, but feel free to shape or trim to your preferred size with scissors. Well made product for the same price as cheapo model offered elsewhere.

HELPFUL HINTS
  • NEVER use too much flux! Excess flux trapped in your solder seams will corrode your solder from the inside out, leaving a white, powdery residue. It doesn't matter how often you scrape this corrosion, it always returns because the flux is INSIDE the solder bead.
  • The answer is to use your flux as sparingly as possible. Apply with a Q-tip, if need be!
  • An extra harsh (ie. industrial or sheet metal) flux will give you white powder troubles, no matter how little you use. Be sure your flux is designed to work with stained glass.
  • When used properly, the fluxes on this page won't corrode if promptly washed off your work. Use The Solution, CJ's Flux and Patina Remover or Kwik Clean for removing and neutralizing flux residue.
