Fluxes & Fluxing Equipment

Flux is a substance which must be applied to the lead or copper before soldering to promote the fusion of the solder to the metal. The flux removes the oxides from the surface of the metal, which forms there by exposure to air.

Classic 100 Gel Flux is not exactly a gel, but a thickened liquid flux. The thickening means it doesn't splash when you apply it, and it stays where you put it. It's non-smoking, odorless and water-cleanable (as we all should be), although if you put too much flux on your workpiece you can cause the flux to smoke up. It can be used for copper foil, lead or zinc. 8 oz bottle with a flip-top lid.

A very high quality flux. The manufacturer claims "this is the one flux that will save you more time and money than any other". This is because Johnson's Soldering Fluid enables all solders to flow at their lowest possible temperature, yet it protects your work at higher temperatures without burning away. Your solder joints will be stronger and less solder will drop off your work. 3.5 oz bottle.
