13 August 2014 Question by: Allen Morgan | Product code: 85-0610
Q. I have been using tin/lead solder with the shown product code for about 7 years. This does not appear to have flux in it. The present product has flux. The solder is used for brass and nickel silver model railway kits which have to be cleaned for painting. How easy is it to remove flux residue, please or do you do tin/lead solder without flux? Regards Allen Morgan
A. Hi Allen. Thank you for your question. We do not appear to have any versions without flux but we can recommend is either using a higher temperature to burn off the flux when soldering or it can be removed after with a small wire or tooth brush and some alcohol spray or liquid will remove it.
