Dry/Powdered Fluxes

 

Fluxes are available as a dry powder flux, paste flux, slurry (dispensable) flux, or as a liquid flux. Dry powder fluxes are necessary for specialized applications in order for the flux to work properly when connecting a joint, which is required in cases when high temperature is involved, or in the furnace brazing process.

Advantages of Dry Powder Flux

  • Longer shelf life - Dry powder flux doesn't require water, therefore it has a longer shelf life.
  • Saves on costs - You are able to make a paste by adding water or alcohol by mixing paste as needed, therefore the product weighs less for shipping as a dry powder flux.

How to Properly Use Dry Powder Fluxes

Dry powder flux may be applied to the heated end of a brazing rod or brazing wire by dipping the heated rod into the flux container, also known as ""hot rodding."" It can also be applied to preheated surfaces prior to brazing to minimize part oxidation, however, it is important to note that when powder is applied to cold surfaces, it does not adhere very well compared to surfaces that are heated.

Read the Technical Documents, MSDS Safety Sheets, and the warranty statements to ensure that you are storing, stirring, and using the dry flux properly. You can also learn more about the function of flux and it's importance in the brazing process by visiting our page on Proper Brazing Procedure under Step 3: Fluxing the parts.
