Step 2 – You’ve determined if your process is soldering, brazing or welding.
We’ve broken soldering down into two categories – Industrial Soldering Flux and Electronics Soldering Flux. We treat Brazing Flux, Aluminum Flux and Welding Flux as their own categories. We’ve also added a few additional categories. Here’s the breakdown:
Superior No. 30 SuperSafe Soldering Flux: No. 30 is a great all purpose flux with so many uses and such a great track record that it merits its own page.
Electronics Soldering Flux: Applications that involve soldering printed circuit boards (PCBs), semi-conductors, or tinning component leads all fall under the umbrella of electronics soldering. These fluxes are frequently halide-free, halogen-free, and no-clean fluxes. This means there is no need for a cleaning step after soldering, which reduces time and cost of production. While this is convenient, it will depend on the application if a no-clean flux is active enough for you.
Industrial Soldering Flux: If you’re not soldering printed circuit boards (PCBs), semi-conductors, or component lead tinning, then you probably belong here. Scan the different web pages, broken down by application, and see if any apply to your application. If you’re looking for general purpose active fluxes that will work with stainless steel or other ferrous alloys, go to Stainless Steel Soldering Flux.
Electronics Soldering Flux: If you’re soldering printed circuit boards (PCB’s) or doing wire or component lead tinning, semi-conductors or component lead tinning, you belong in this section. The Overview for Electronics Soldering Flux is organized according to the various stages of PCB fabrication and wire/component tinning.
Aluminum Flux: We supply fluxes for all types of aluminum joining: soldering, brazing and welding. We offer the broadest range of aluminum soldering fluxes on the market.
Brazing Flux: Our brazing fluxes are broken down according to application. See our general purpose Silver Brazing White Flux Paste, and our High-Temp Black Brazing Flux Paste. We have a particularly strong line-up of Carbide Brazing Flux Paste. The Brazing Flux section also includes a wide variety of additional brazing applications, such as aluminum brazing and jewelry brazing.
Welding Flux: As with the other categories, welding is broken down according to application. Our Anti-Borax Fluxes division has been selling welding flux to blacksmiths for over a century.
Tube Welding Flux: Our tube welding fluxes offer stainless steel tube fabricators an opportunity to greatly reduce defects and potentially eliminate the use of costly argon and other inert gases in tube welding applications.
RubyFluid Flux: In 2010 Superior Flux purchased the RubyFluid Flux line. We are proud to manufacture this line of soldering flux that has been a favorite among roofers, artisans, plumbers and other assemblers for over a century.
