For correct seasoning of cable ends, users have the option of treating the surface (once degreased) with flux and soaking for tinning or use our innovative tinning formula, ETAMALLOY®, the Metaconcept Groups tinning solution which provides stripper, flux and tin in a single application saving time and effort during the preparation.
