Generise Jewellers and Silversmiths Soldering Flux - 3 Options
Soldering Flux serves a versatile purpose and offers straightforward instructions for usage. It's applicable to a wide range of valuable metals such as silver, gold, platinum group, and various cupreous metals. Notably, it acts as a preventive measure against oxidization in both solder and soldering areas.
The process is uncomplicated: the flux powder is combined with water to achieve a creamy consistency. This mixture is then applied to the intended joint or welding area using a fine brush. Additionally, it's recommended to coat the solder pallion or wire with the mixture.
To ensure optimal solder adhesion and prevent detachment during soldering, a gentle application of heat is employed to dry the paste. Once this step is complete, the soldering process can proceed as usual.
Furthermore, this product finds utility as a coating for crucibles before the metal melting process. In the case of new crucibles, the flux needs to be applied as a glaze prior to melting metals. The technique involves sprinkling the powder into the crucible and then using a torch or kiln to apply heat. Incremental additions of the powder continue until the entire interior of the crucible is glazed.
During the actual melting process, a small amount of borax can be sprinkled onto the molten metal to maintain smooth flow and prevent oxidization. By adhering to these guidelines, the product ensures effective and controlled processes for various metal-related tasks.
For Use On All Precious Metals.
3 Sizes: 200g, 500g & 1kg.
Prevents Oxidisation Of The Older And Soldering Area.
Simply Mix With Water To Create A Creamy Consistency.
Ideal for Silver, Gold, Platinum And Cupreous Metals.
Usage and Instructions:
Use for all precious metals, silver, gold and platinum group as well as all cupreous metals.
Prevents oxidisation of the solder and soldering area.
Flux powder is simple to use. Simply mix with water to create a creamy consistency.
Apply to the joint or area to be soldered / welded with a fine brush. Also coat the solder pallion or wire.
Apply gentle heat to dry the paste which ensures the solder sticks and does not jump off and then solder as normal.
Coating for crucibles prior to metal melting - New crucibles need to be glazed with flux before melting your metal which ensures the molten metal flows freely.
Sprinkle the powder in the crucible and apply heat with your torch or kiln.
Continue to add small quantities until the whole interior is glazed.
During the melting process a little borax sprinkled on the molten metal will help to maintain flow and prevent oxidisation.
