Product Description

KLEENOX CRYSTALS are specially designed for cleaning and protecting the solder bath in radiator manufacturing plants from air oxidation and formation. Solder bath forms a thin film of lead oxide and tin oxide. These oxides will prevent solder from wetting the base metal and must be removed. KLEENOX CRYSTALS removes them. The overall reaction with lead oxide can be summarized as:

PbO + 2NH4Cl ——-> PbCl2 + 2NH3 + H2O

The ammonia and water vaporize at solder bath temperatures and are carried off by exhaust vents over the solder bath. The reactions for tin oxide are similar to those for lead oxide.

  • Must be rapid in its action and
  • This action must not be impaired by production fluxes such as Zinc chloride, amine hydrohalides and similar materials KLEENOX CRYSTALS fulfills these requirements.

 KLEENOX CRYSTALS fulfills these requirements.

 APPLICATION :
Heat the solder bath to operating temperatures. The usual practice is to add half the charge initially and the remainder after the first addition has melted.

PRECAUTIONS :
KLEENOX CRYSTALS is extremely corrosive to equipment and can also cause severe damage to the skin and eyes. Face protection must be used when working with crystals on the solder pot because of the possibility of spattering of the molten flux.

STORAGE & HANDLING :
Drums of KLEENOX CRYSTALS should be stored out of the sun and away from heat. Crystals must be stored as to avoid moisture pick-up. The container should be kept tightly closed in a dry place. An inventory turnover rate of two to three months is recommended to minimize caking.

TROUBLE SHOOTING TIPS :

  • Be sure the area is clean before fluxing.
  • If the solder fails to flow or the metal turns dark, you are using too much heat. Allow the metal to cool, reflux the area and adjust the flame lower or hold the torch further from the work.
  • If the solder fails to flow or the metal turns dark, you are using too much heat. Allow the metal to cool, reflux the area and adjust the flame lower or hold the torch further from the work.
  • ZERO-ZINC fluxes perform better with high tin solders than high lead solders.
