Superior Flux offers a full range of of continuous wire and strip tinning flux. We have fluxes available for tinning continuous reels of wire or strips. Our continuous wire and strip tinning fluxes can be used for tinning copper, brass and steel wires. An excellent summary of the applications appears beneath the table below.
Our wire and strip tinning fluxes are RoHS compliant.
Steel Wire Tinning: Flux for Continuous Tinning of Steel Wire
Our Superior No. 74 steel continuous wire and strip tinning flux contains zinc chloride, ammonium chloride and hydrochloric acid for the demanding needs of continuously tinning solder to steel. The flux is active at room temperature, where it begins to clean metals and remove oxides. No. 74 is an inorganic acid type flux. This flux offers a high degree of fluxing activity in the soldering and tinning temperature ranges for steel wire tinning.
Copper Wire Tinning: Fluxes for Continuous Tinning of Copper Wire
The acidity of continuous copper wire tinning flux comes from organic acid. As a result our copper wire tinning flux is much less corrosive to tinning equipment than inorganic zinc chloride based copper wire tinning flux. Our copper wire tinning flux leaves minimal, zinc-free residues in the tinning pot after tinning.
Superior No. 460 Copper Wire/Strip Tinning Flux: A zinc-free, halide-activated organic acid tinning flux for high-speed continuous tinning of intermediate gage copper wire and strip.
Superior No. 461 Copper Wire/Strip Tinning Flux: A concentrated zinc-free, halide-activated organic acid tinning flux for high-speed continuous tinning of fine gage copper wire and strip.
Superior No. 462 Copper Wire/Strip Tinning Flux: A zinc-free, halide-activated organic acid tinning flux for continuous tinning of heavy gage copper wire and strip.
Brass Wire Tinning: Fluxes for Continuous Tinning of Brass Wire
Our brass strip tinning fluxes are both zinc-free and zinc-based type fluxes. They offer a high degree of fluxing activity in the soldering and tinning temperatures for continuous brass strip tinning. These tinning fluxes leave minimal residue in the tinning pot after passing through the tinning process.
Superior No. 464 Brass Strip Tinning Flux: A zinc-free, ammonia-free, mixed organic/inorganic acid flux that can be diluted 1:1 for common tinning needs.
Superior No. 465 Brass Strip Tinning Flux: A zinc-free, ammonia-free, metal halide flux with organic/inorganic acid formulation. This is one of the strongest tinning fluxes offered and can solder very difficult-to-solder alloys that can not be soldered with even a zinc chloride-based flux.
Superior No. 74 Brass Strip Tinning Flux: A classic zinc chloride/ammonium chloride-based flux. For common soldering tasks it can be diluted with water.
Superior No. 27 Soldering Salts: A mixture of zinc and ammonium chloride salts used for high temperature cleaning of tinning apparatus. No. 27 is a powder flux that can be mixed with water to create a inorganic acid, liquid soldering flux. See additional Soldering Salt/Babbitt Flux.
