Fry 981 RBW

Fry 981 RBW is a nonflammable flux for use in battery fabrication. This water-based flux offers a wide process window, contains no chlorides or heavy metals to effect long term performance, and is environmentally safe.

Fry 981 RBW provides consistent metallurgical fusing for all lead battery alloys when a water-based flux is needed. It is especially effective in joining dissimilar alloys ass in cast-on-strap manufacturing. In open flame burning operations Fry 981 RBW provides sound metallurgical bonding, is low fuming and smoking, not flammable or highly corrosive, and leaves minimal residue. 981 RBW contains an inert red dye to assure complete pre-fluxing.

Fry 981 RBW can be applied by dipping, spraying, or brushing functions in closed or open systems. It has a long working life in the fluxpot and, if necessary, may be thinned with water.
