ETYM Latin fluxus, from fluere, fluxum, to flow: cf.French flux. Related to Fluent, Floss, Flush.
1. The total strength of a magnetic, electric, or radiation field over a given area.
2. A chemical used to aid the binding of solder to electrical conductors.
In soldering, a substance that improves the bonding properties of solder by removing contamination from metal surfaces and preventing their oxidation, and by reducing the surface tension of the molten solder alloy. For example, with solder made of lead-tin alloys, the flux may be resin, borax, or zinc chloride.In smelting, a substance that combines with the unwanted components of the ore to produce a fusible slag, which can be separated from the molten metal. For example, the mineral fluorite, CaF2, is used as a flux in iron smelting; it has a low melting point and will form a fusible mixture with substances of higher melting point such as silicates and oxides.A chemically- or physically-active formulation which has the ability to clean oxides and enables wetting of metals with solder.
1. A flow or discharge; SYN. fluxion.
2. A substance added to molten metals to bond with impurities that can then be readily removed.
3. In constant change.
4. The rate of flow of energy or particles across a given surface.
