I began using paste solder earlier this year & find it useful. This
is just a reminder about the importance of really good
Many paste solder/flux combinations contain fluoride compounds. When
heated, toxic gases are released that can do real damage in the
lungs. According to Monona Rossol’s “Artist’s Health and Safety
Guide”, fluoride-based fluxes are to be avoided. By the way, I
learned about Rossol’s book on the Ganoksin website - thank you
Charles Lewton-Brain and thank you Orchid!
I’d sure love to hear if anyone knows of a source of paste solder/
flux that is fluoride-free. Thanks.
