Fluxes are the compounds used on the joint surfaces before soldering. Fluxes are of two types viz. corrosive fluxes and non-corrosive fluxes. A non-corrosive flux is a type of soldering flux which does not corrode the base metal it is used in. It is used in the applications where the metal must be protected from corrosive residue. Rosin is one of the most widely used non-corrosive flux. Rosin is available in liquid, paste and powder form. The non-corrosive fluxes contain fluoride salts as well as cesium compounds. This depends on the base materials and filler material applications. The use of non-corrosive fluxes is important as any remains in the joints can corrode the connection and cause a defective circuit. The major advantage of using non-corrosive flux is the elimination of post-braze cleaning. Avoiding post-braze washing eliminates the chances for corrosion from the corrosive flux residue. The non-corrosive flux finds application in the open-air brazing with torch, furnace and induction methods. They are used for joining wide range of aluminium alloys. The advantages of using non-corrosive fluxes is less known, and hence the market is very niche. However, the global non-corrosive fluxes market is anticipated to witness a moderate single digit growth rate in the forecast period.
Non-Corrosive Fluxes Market: Drivers and restraints
The growing demand for electrical products is expected to boost the demand for non-corrosive fluxes in the forecast period. The advantage of non-corrosive fluxes pertaining to the elimination of post-braze cleaning makes it more tractive over the corrosive fluxes. This in turn is anticipated to fuel the demand for noncorrosive fluxes in the upcoming years. Moreover, the growing automotive industry is projected to increase the demand for non-corrosive fluxes in the forecast period. There is no environmental related considerations for the use of non-corrosive fluxes. This can help the global non-corrosive fluxes market to grow. Vacuum brazing is proving to be a trend in the global non-corrosive fluxes market.
Solvay Flux GmbH is identified as one of the major market player in the global non-corrosive fluxes market. They provide non-corrosive fluxes for aluminium brazing. The market players are moving towards merger and acquisition to enhance their position in the global non-corrosive fluxes market.
