Tests using other Fluxes

All the results reported on so far used Soyer 1 enamel flux powder. I now undertook a limited number of tests on some other enamel fluxes. Although a wide choice is available, I restricted my tests to just a few. They were samples I had purchased from time to time but not used to any extent. There is no suggestion they are superior to the many other excellent enamel fluxes that are on the market; simply that they were easily to hand and provided an opportunity for testing. The fluxes are listed below:-


Soyer 1 flux for copper (repeat tested for comparison)

Soyer2 flux for gold

Soyer3 flux for silver


T200 normal flux

T232 silver flux

T700 diamond flux
