Arc Welding 101: A Beginner’s Guide To Flux

Welding flux is crucial as a prime anti-oxidising agent most commonly associated with arc welding. Choosing the right one will play an important role in the final quality of the weld. As anyone in the industry knows, becoming a welder is no easy feat as they are put to the test with extensive training. Welders must familiarise themselves with the various weld types, practices and the components for each welding method.

Did you know that flux core welding is known as one of the oldest arc welding methods? In this case, age has no bearing as is it remains one of the most effective and widely used methods for joining metal. The way it works is pretty straightforward as flux prevents welds from interacting with the environment, including air. Without flux, the base and filler material will interact with the atmosphere forming oxides or other unwanted compounds.
