Flux plays a vital role in virtually all air brazing processes. Use of the wrong flux or a poor application technique can have
a dramatic effect on joint quality. Bill Shorthouse Metals supply a large selection of silver solder brazing fluxes to meet our customers' various applications, these include: General purpose flux powders and pastes. We also supply fluxes suitable for brazing aluminium bronze, stainless steels and other difficult metals. We provide these fluxes in standard packaging in tubs of 250grm, 500grm, 1 kilo, & 5 kilos.
These products are general-purpose silver brazing fluxes. They can be used on the common engineering metals including copper, copper alloys (brass, bronze, nickel silver, copper nickel), nickel alloys, steel, stainless steel and tungsten carbide.
They are available in both paste and powder form and with varying working range, activity and overheat resistance and can be supplied according to Rolls-Royce (MSRR 9500) specification.
EASY-FLO™ flux powder has excellent flux pick-up onto warm brazing rod when using the hot rodding technique.
Easy-flo Silver Brazing Fluxes - General Purpose
These products are popular general-purpose silver brazing fluxes. They can be used on the common engineering metals including, copper, copper alloys, (brass, bronze, nickel silver, copper nickel), nickel alloys. steel, stainless steel and tungsten carbide. Specialised fluxes are often required for aluminium bronze, stainless steel and tungsten carbide.

Easy-flo Silver Brazing Fluxes for Special Applications
Tenacity Brazing Fluxes - Boron Modified
The addition of elemental boron to brazing fluxes improves filler metal wetting on refactory metals and difficult to wet materials such as tungsten carbide. It should be noted that boron-modified fluxes are not suitable for use on low or nickel-free stainless steel if interfacial corrosion is likely to be a hazard in service because they can promote the corrosion mechanism.
Tenacity Brazing Fluxes - Medium and High Temperature
Designed for components requiring extended heating cycles, low silver or copper based brazing filler metals.
Specialised Tenacity Fluxes
Alu-flo Fluxes For Brazing Aluminium
These products are designed for low temperature aluminium brazing in air.
Stop-flo Stop off or Parting Compounds
These products are formulated to prevent the flow and wetting of molten brazing filler metal across the surface of a component during the brazing process. They are suitable for vacuum furnace, controlled atmosphere or air brazing processes. Stop-flo No. 1 and Stop-flo No. 2 are available in paint, paste or tape form. Residues of Stop-flo No. 1 or No. 2 before and after brazing are best removed using a water wash.
