Fluxes for cleaning, re-melting and element removal


ELIMINAL flux is a highly oxidizing agent for cleaning and removing aluminum contamination from copper alloys. It is not suitable for aluminum bronzes and only to a certain extent for manganese or silicium bronzes.


Covering fluxes


CUPREX 100 flux is a covering agent for copper alloys that provides the melt with oxidizing conditions. It can be used for copper alloys containing tin and nickel such as red brass, tin bronze, lead bronze (with less than 10 % lead), phosphor bronze and copper-nickel alloys such as Monel.


CUPRIT 49 flux is a covering agent in powder form for copper and copper alloys melted under neutral conditions. It can be used on brasses, special brasses and soldering alloys


ALBRAL 2 flux is a reducing cleaning and covering flux for aluminum bronzes and special brasses containing alloying elements that are prone to oxidation such as aluminum, manganese and silicon. ALBRAL 2 produces a liquid dross on the metal surface.


Products for purging/degassing and homogenizing copper melts


LOGAS 50 briquettes are used for plunging into copper and copper alloys to remove dissolved hydrogen and float out oxides.


Slag coagulants


SLAX 20 is a coagulant used for positive slag control on all copper alloys.


Specialty fluxes for electric and induction furnaces

ELEKTRO flux is a covering and cleaning agent for all copper alloys melted in electrically heated or induction furnaces. It is are especially recommended for channel induction furnaces.


ELEKTRO 1743/2 flux is a covering and slightly reducing cleaning agent for all types of alloys but especially for brass.

"Prior to our relationship with Weaver Materiel, we were purchasing riser sleeves direct from the OEM. As a stocking distributor, Weaver typically is able to deliver same or next day. OEM lead times averaged three to four weeks. With Weaver, I've been able to reduce my working inventory by about 40%."

- JD Schmidt, QA Manager, Ohio Ferrous Foundry

“Ashland Foundry & Machine Works and Weatherly Casting are grateful for the partnership in our working relationship with Weaver Materials.  Weaver has helped us maintain pricing and avoid increases in a volatile market.  Weaver has always kept us in supply of material when markets dictated shortages/allocation status.  If Weaver was not in our vendor pool daily production ability would have been negatively impacted.  Weaver is also technically able to review our foundry processes and make suggestions to either achieve a cost savings or process improvement.  I am looking forward to a continued collaboration between the Weaver team and my locations.”
