SolderSource takes great pride in offering this environmentally safe, non-toxic paste flux as exclusive distributor for Canada. Our alliance with Precise Alloys, specifically Mr. Mark Sabarese, President, gives us the opportunity to join in his efforts to bring this 'safe to use' paste flux to all users. Mr. Sabarese invested several years of R & D to finally create and patent the specially formulated 'Orange-Eco' paste flux, putting to rest what industry experts large and small had insisted - that a non-corrosive, non-toxic, environmentally safe paste flux was impossible to produce. Orange -Eco offers a health and safety solution with critical benefits to global humanity and drinking water systems. The advantages of the non-corrosive residue feature adds longevity and sustainability to the materials being soldered and the equipment being fed by the water/fluid flow - and again, the safety of soldering operators, home handyman and professionals alike.
Orange-Eco paste flux is suited to many industries - plumbing, roofing, stained glass, as well as electrical, electronics, solar panel and more. It is a premier choice to recommend to, and to be specified by, plumbers, contractors, architects, developers, and industry experts, as to the hazards of conventional paste flux - contaminatiing drinking water pipes, equipment connected, the environment generally. Safe to use, safe for you, safe for our environment.
The revisions to the ASTM B813 Standard are in
General Requirements Section 3 as follows:
The flux residue shall be
water flushable after soldering as specified in accordance with Section 7 and 9.
The flux residue shall not be corrosive
or toxic after soldering potable water systems.
The flux shall not release toxic fumes during the soldering operation
or corrosive or toxic substances in the water inside or outside the completed system.
