ALUMATEC B-TUBE Performance Fluxes

Description

Alumatec folded tube fluxes are formulated and manufactured to be smooth, free flowing and clog free flux pastes. Alumatec folded tube fluxes are specifically engineered to the customer’s application requirements. Alumatec fluxes can be used in a variety of applications that may include but not limited to folded tube, clinch tube, internal turbulators and tube to header joints. Alumatec fluxes work great in both manual and automated applications.

Our New Generation HX folded tube flux offers the same great brazing and application characteristics as our standard folded tube fluxes with the added benefit of extended storage life of fluxed pre-braze tubes in tropical climates.

Strategic Flux Coatings

NMP Free

Alumakote performance coatings offer competitive solutions to strategically fluxed components.

Alumakote

ALUMAKOTE binder can be used in a mixture of binder, water and flux. Other additives are not necessary. Alumakote can be used in most furnace brazing applications to reduce flux dust, fall-off and usage. Alumakote can be applied by dipping, brushing or spraying. Drying steps are required.

Improved brazing results   Recommended thickness 10-30µm   Improved post braze appearance

No post braze discoloration
