Action - Tin Tinning Paint Action

The perfect soldering job is easy when you use Action-Tin Tinning Plant.  Perfect soldering is achieved when the two surfaces in contact are metallurgically (mechanically and chemically) bonded together by the solder.  The entire area is covered and there are no voids.  Action-Tin wets each surface entirely which you can see before soldering. 

Action-Tin is a mixture of tin and lead solder powder and a specially formulated chemical flux.  It is thick and creamy so it stays where you put it.  It pre-tins not only copper and brass, but harder to solder materials such as steel, iron, stainless steel, cast iron, beryllium copper, terne plate, lead flashings and coatings.

Action-Tin may be diluted with water when using in a tinning bath.  Dilute to desired consistency and agitate bath to keep metal from settling

Contains no muriatic acid yet does a better job and works more actively than many fluxes do.  As with all fluxes, make sure the area you are working in is well ventilated and follow proper procedures and precautions.

Also available in our lead-free formula – EnviroSafe Action-Tin.  Safe for use on all sanitary, food and other environmentally sensitive applications.    

Lead Free EnviroSafe Tinning Paint

Containing only a lead free alloy solder powder and our special flux, Lead Free EnviroSafe Action Tin can be used with EnviroSafe solder on all sanitary, food, and other environmentally sensitive applications. (Can also be used with other solders.) Large copper, brass and other tubular materials can be sweat soldered with complete coverage by tinning surface first with Action Tin, then fluxing, assembling and soldering. Perfect soldering is achieved when the two surfaces in contact are metallurgically bonded together by the solder. The entire area is covered and there are no voids. Action Tin wets each surface entirely and you can see this before soldering. It pre-tins not only copper and brass, but also hard to solder materials such as steel, iron, stainless steel, cast iron, beryllium copper, terne plate, lead flashings, and lead coatings. After pre-tinning, you can then assemble using any flux and solder.

Solder-Magic Action-Tin Tinning Paint
Tinning Paints are used for pre-tinning of any product, but especially for difficult to solder applications. They are applied, as the name implies, as a paint. The paints are more fluid because they lack a thickening agent, therefore the paint requires stirring prior to use. Typical metal content is up to 30% by weight. The paint is brushed or wiped onto the surface and reflowed by oven, torch or iron. It is available in most common soldering alloys. 

The highly active zinc chloride based flux system is appropriate for many types of industrial solder alloys and base metals. Warm water is used to clean any residues, especially for critical metal surfaces. These products are not appropriate for sensitive electronic applications.
