ASTM WK46778

    Revision of B813 - 10 Standard Specification for Liquid and Paste Fluxes for Soldering of Copper and Copper Alloy Tube

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: B813 - 10

    Developed by Subcommittee: B05.04 | Committee B05 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    If a Base Flux meets the requirements of ASTM B813, and the same Base Flux is used to make Tinning Flux by addition of no more than 10% alloy powder to it, then the Tinning Flux should be deemed to meet the requirements of ASTM B813.
