Fluxes is a chemical cleaning agent, flowing agent or purifying agent. Fluxes may have more than one function at a time. They are used in both extractive metallurgy and metal joining. As cleaning agents, fluxes facilitate soldering, brazing and welding by removing oxidation from the metals to be joined. Common fluxes are ammonium chloride, hydrochloric acid and zinc chloride.
