Aluclean 18

Aluclean 18 is a covering and drossing-off flux to be used in melting and holding furnaces for aluminium alloys. During melting operation the cover flux protects the molten charge from the oxidizing furnace flames. Aluclean 18 reduces oxide inclusions formation in liquid metal. When used as drossing-off flux, Aluclean 18 must be stir into the liquid metal surface; it reacts with non metallic impurities (Zn e Mg oxides) and helps the removal of drosses with low metallic content. Drosses can be pressed by “The Press” without further exothermic reaction.
