Fluxes – Powder Flux and Granulated Flux

Home Products Non-Ferrous Fluxes – Powder Flux and Granulated Flux


Fluxes are special blends of typically solid, inorganic compounds designed for degassing, demagging, cleaning, grain refining, and/or chemistry modification of molten aluminium alloys and other purposes. Fluxes are usually added during the melting, holding or degassing of aluminium to furnaces, crucibles, ladles, or other aluminium vessels. Flux raw-material quality, addition method and product form can all affect efficiency. A flux recipe varies depending on its purpose and other process variables, such as alloy and temperature.

Powder Flux

Powder fluxes are affordable blends of salts designed to improve molten aluminium alloy cleanliness, reduce dross metal content, sustain furnace cleanliness and generate high-quality casts.

Granulated Flux

Forace Granulated Flux is an environmentally friendly range of fluxes used for molten metal treatment of aluminium and aluminium alloys. Powder fluxes possess certain disadvantages such as dusting during application, toxic fume emissions. This causes health hazard to the workers and environmental problems. The powder fluxes also pose a problem of inconsistent efficiency due to the morphology of the powder. To overcome these disadvantages, dust free granulated fluxes have been developed.
