Fluxes

Our foundry fluxes for the treatment of non-ferrous metals such as aluminium, copper, zinc, magnesium and their alloys are manufactured in France from high quality raw materials.

They are the result of extensive research, laboratory trials and ongoing adjustments during the industrial phase.

They are supplied according to specific features, in powder, granular or tablet form. They are used in the treatment of metal in its liquid state.

In each of our fluxes you will find the answer to your specific requirements.

The palets

High quality Foundry Fluxes for treatment of aluminium and aluminium alloys are manufactured in France by AluminiumMartigny France through extensive research and laboratory trials.

Foundry fluxes are available in : powder, granular and tablet form for treatment of metal in liquid state.

Fluxes are available according to customer requirements for various treatments such as:

  • Coverage
  • Slag removal
  • Scrubbing
  • Deoxidation
  • Degassing
  • Modification
  • Refinement etc.

The specific nature of aluminium and its alloys make the use of a one-way multiple use flux impossible. The full range of fluxes which has been developed by Aluminium Martigny France allows the company to ensure an optimum response to customer wishes concerning the various treatments : coverage, slag removal, scrubbing, deoxidation, degassing, modification, refinement etc.
