 Potassium Aluminum Fluoride
Potassium Aluminum Fluoride (KAlFx) — KBAlloys' potassium aluminum fluoride is a commercial grade fused solid, inorganic salt comprising of a mixture of potassium hexa- and tetrafluoroaluminates (K3AlF6 and KAlF4).
Fluxes - Potassium Aluminum Fluoride is often the primary constituent in salt fluxes for metal cleaning, either as a stand-alone addition or combined with other salts such as NaCl and KCl.
The function of the salt flux is to separate metals from oxide and dross and to prevent incendiary burning of the aluminum, thereby maximizing yields.
