Bridgit® Soldering Flux

BRPF4

Bridgit® paste soldering flux 4 oz. Jar w/brush cap

DETAILS

Bridgit® Burn Resistant Paste soldering Flux is formulated to be active over a wide temperature range. This makes it an excellent choice for most all solder compositions. It is ideal for use where a longer heating cycle is required as it resists thermal decomposition. Bridget stays active to 800◦F. This range covers soldering temperatures required by most lead-free solders. Bridgit® flux is burn resistant, reducing carbon formation that may result in leaks. The flux is unexcelled for use in soldering copper, brass, bronze, galvanized and other plumbing fittings. This flux works extremely well with Bridgit® lead-free solder in potable water system applications and is a good choice with other solder compositions. Conforms to the EU Reach & RoHS directive.

Features

  • Designed for use with lead-free solders
  • Stays active to 800◦F (427◦C)
  • Will not burn at soldering temperature, reducing black carbon formations that can result in voids and leaks
  • A plumbing paste flux formulated to withstand higher soldering temperatures
  • Performs extremely well with Bridgit® lead-free solder for plumbing and potable water system applications
  • Works equally well with other solders
  • Meets NSF/ANSI 61: Drinking Water System Components – Health Effects
  • Meets NSF/ANSI 372: Drinking Water System Components – Lead Content - Conforms to the lead content requirements for lead-free plumbing as defined by California, Vermont, Maryland, and Louisiana state laws & the US Safe Drinking Water Act and amendments
  • Complies with the EU Reach & RoHS directive
