Clear Green-flux


#1

Found some old bottles of REY Green-flux in a storage room. It is
clear not green. Does the color disappearing from green flux
indicate that it is not usable any longer? Any thoughts from anyone
out there?

The flourescent (sometimes) green dye is just there to make it sexy
for the marketing types. Makes it compete with Batterns, which also
has an otherwise functionless dye. And yes, it fades. Without
affecting the utility of the flux.

we keep our flux in a dark cabinet, we used to sit it out and it
would loose color and form crystals in the bottom, it is light
sensitive to some degree

Interesting. I purchased part of an ‘estate’ recently of old tools
and ‘stuff’. Amongst it all was a full…never opened bottle of
Batterns that was pure clear just like water. The interesting part
is…it seems to work better than the yellow/green. I thought at
first Batterns made it that way originally but now I suspect it
might have faded. This stuff is about 15 years old but it works
perfectly. Cheers from Don at The Charles Belle Studio in SOFL where
is it 80ish, clear and cool and where simple elegance IS fine
jewelry! @coralnut1
