In what forms are fluxes available?

To determine

The forms in which fluxes are available.


The flux used in the brazing and soldering process serves the following purposes:

  1. Flux must help in removing the oxides forming on the surface. The oxides may form due to heating the parts involved in joining.
  2. The flux helps in wetting the surface which allows the filler metal to spread evenly in the form of a very thin layer on the surface of the solid base metal.
  3. The joints made with the help of soldering and brazing are made with the help of filler material. The filler material seeps into the space between the joints through the capillary action. This capillary action is assisted by the introduction of flux.

The fluxes are available in various forms such as solids, liquids, powders, in the form of sheets, in the form of rings and in the form of washers...
