Solder paints, pastes and fluxes

We offer fluxes for dipping and high temperature baking as well as solder paints, powders and pastes.

White metal bearing alloys

White metal bearing alloys complete the range for high and low running applications from lead rich Babbitt alloys to high tin BSS 3332 specifications. All grades of alloy can be supplied in either 3kg ingots, 1kg bars or 250g tinman sticks. The bearing metals can be used with bronze, gunmetal, steel or cast iron shells. All types of BSS 3332/1987 are available.
