STICKS

Soldering sticks

Soldering sticks for building and industries

Sticks form part of our wide range of filler metals for soft soldering. These products are used for applications such as building and all types of manufacturing. Waste originating from the use of these products can be recycled.
The sticks are made from primary quality metals. Their shape is particularly suited to plumbing work, accessories for sheet metal work and car bodywork. They are also suitable for industrial use in the assembly of various metals such as copper, brass, tin and zinc. The METACONCEPT Group collects used baths, off-cuts, scraps and white metal oxides.

Trapezoidal soldering Sticks

Applications

Sn28 – Sn30 – Sn33 sticks
Plumbing, tinware, car bodywork, tinning baths, sheet metal work, coverings.Sn40 sticks
Heating, assembly of mechanical partsSn50 – Sn60 sticks
Creating of and filling tinning baths, assembly of mechanical parts.Sn100 sticks
Casting, surface treatments including tinning cookware, brassware.Sn40 sticks
Sheet metal work, coverings, assembly of mechanical partsOtaline sticks
Used on aluminium and its alloys. Apply Aluflux flux for this application.

Implementation

The product safety datasheet below is available on request from the METACONCEPT Group.

The parts to assemble must be clean (deoxidised and degreased). Apply the appropriate flux to the parts. Heat the parts using a propane or acetylene torch, or a soldering iron.
The parts must be brought to a temperature of around 15 to 20°C below liquidus.
Melt the filler metal onto the parts being assembled to form a regular bead.
Allow the parts to cool without moving them.
When the parts have returned to room temperature, brush the soldering beads using a metallic brush. If necessary, clean the assembly with clean water or water with a touch of citric or formic acid (1 to 2%).

Precautions of use

To prevent burns caused by the molten metal, it is advisable to wear a protective apron, shoes, gloves, helmet and glasses.
Do not smoke at the workstation.
The workstation must be well ventilated.
Wash your hands when leaving the workstation.

Comments :
Always use a flux suited to the intended use. Contact our technical department to ascertain which product is most suited to your application.
