Kester 24-5050-2437 is an acid core wire. Acid Core is a highly active inorganic acid type of flux developed for general-purpose soldering applications where a flux-cored solder wire is desirable. Rapid soldering can be accomplished on all common metals except aluminum and manganese. Acid flux is particularly useful for soldering excessively oxidized metals.
Kester Acid Core possesses excellent thermal stability to function under prolonged high temperature conditions as with torch or flame soldering. It is not recommended for electrical or electronic soldering applications due to the corrosive nature of the residue. Kester Acid Core is available in a wide variety of alloys, wire diameters and flux percentages.
