Description for Precise Alloys OEKIT1

This Kit Contains 2 ounce jar of Orange-Eco Paste Flux, 1/2 lb Platinum (silver-bearing) solder, and brush

ORANGE-ECO

Orange-Eco is a specially formulated, earth-friendly paste flux that is water-soluble and contains no zinc, ammonium chloride, petrolatum or metals. It is competitively priced and praised by trade professionals because it is exceptionally easy to use. Orange-Eco generates minimal smoke and leaves behind no corrosive residues after soldering.

Orange-Eco dissolves even the heaviest oxide films to provide a superior solder joint. It is the ideal paste flux for all solder-able metals. It also promotes wet-ability of the solder by spreading quickly and evenly over the surface to be soldered. Orange-Eco meets and exceeds ASTM B813 specifications for solder paste.

Features:

  • Environmentally safe
  • No zinc chloride (extremely corrosive)
  • No ammonium chloride (extremely corrosive)
  • No petrolatum (Vaseline)
  • Water soluble
  • Non-corrosive residue
  • Can solder up to a 4" copper pipe without burning away
  • Minimal smoke and odor
  • Doesn't burn skin or open wounds
  • Doesn't freeze or separate
  • Absorbs no water
  • Works on wet pipes
  • Doesn't pop when soldering
  • Does not turn pipes or hands black or green
Application Instructions:

1. Apply to the area where a joint is required. Upon application, an immediate cleaning action can be observed. This occurs even at room temperature.
2. Heat the joint as usual with MAPP, propane or acetylene gas for several seconds. Allow about 3 seconds for it to start flowing into the joint.
3. Remove the heat and continue to work solder into the joint. Allow it to cool to room temperature. Note: larger pipes may take slightly longer to fill the joint.

This flux will activate at approximately 100 degrees Fahrenheit below the usual temperature that other solder pastes require. At around 150 degrees Fahrenheit any acids will burn away, leaving behind a non-corrosive nontoxic residue; however, it still can solder up to a 4" copper pipe without burning away the wetting agent.

PLATINUM SOLDER

Precise Platinum is manufactured from virgin-grade metals and is free of toxic metals such as lead, zinc, arsenic, and cadmium. It is an alloy that consists of tin, copper, antimony, and silver and also contains a proprietary element that cleanses and deoxidizes the alloy. The result is an alloy with improved tensile and shear strength, that flows like 50/50 and leaves a bright shiny joint.

Platinum wets all solder-able surfaces such as brass, bronze, copper, galvanized, monel stainless steel and steel. It is the ideal solder to use on all industrial applications such as plumbing, roofing, and refrigeration. It is available in wire, bar, solder paste powder, foil and preforms.

Precise Platinum meets and exceeds all state and federal regulations for potable and water applications and can fulfill all lead free requirements. It is economical to use and is competitively priced against all major solder brands.

Solder Applications:
  • Plumbing
  • Roofing
  • Refrigeration
  • Works on ALL Solder-able surfaces

Seems to work well

Comments about Orange-Eco Paste Flux (2 Oz.) & Platinum Solder (1/2 lb) w/ Brush:

Flux Works well. Used for a full house potable water copper pipe. Nothing larger than 3/4" was soldered. Much less smoke and the smoke coming off was less bothersome. Cleaned off ok. It is a little different to use than the zinc chloride, but the joints look good and sweated well. Didnt tend to flow inside the pipe much. Worked with the Platinum brand solder, and also with Oatley safe-flo and other potable water solders. I will switch to this as it seems safer to work with. Time will tell if the joint stays good, but it cannot be worse than some of the more aggressive chloride flux joints with the high tin solders when the flux is not cleaned completely off.
