Product Description Use Availability Packaging
Activ8 Acid Cored Solder Wire

An acid cored solder wire for metal fabrication. Activ8 can be used for a variety of uses but should not be used on electronic assemblies.

Residues of Activ8 would, under dry conditions, be non corrosive. But as the work is usually exposed to humidity the residue after soldering would, over a period of time, absorb moisture, becoming mildly corrosive.

The residue of Activ8 is simply removed with water (preferably warm).

Suitable for soldering brass, bronze, cadmium plating, copper, galvanised wire, iron, lead, mild steel, nickel and nickel plating, resistance wires (most types although flux residues should be removed), silver, spring steel, most stainless steels (using 96S), tinplate and zinc and zinc platting.
