Ruby Fluid Liquid Flux for Stainless Steel
RubyFluid Stainless Steel is a water-based, general purpose, inorganic-acid flux formulated for soldering stainless steel and other industrial metals. The flux contains Zinc Chloride and Hydrochloric Acid that make this flux active at room temperature where it begins to clean metals and remove oxides. The flux exerts a strong scavenging action to remove oxide coatings and other impurities from the metal surface to produce strong joints. Pre-cleaning is not necessary under most conditions.
Superior RubyFluid Stainless Steel is excellent for use on Stainless Steel, Monel, High-Chrome Alloys, Inconel, Nickel, Copper, Brass, Ferrous Alloys and many more metals. It is not recommended for Aluminum and Magnesium.
Superior RubyFluid Stainless Steel may be applied with a brush, swab or by dipping. The flux exhibits the best activity between 93-315° C/200-600° F. Post-solder residues are water-soluble and hot water rinses (140° F or higher) may be adequate for most applications.
The following steps are recommended for optimum soldering results:
