Solder and Flux
Our Plumbing Branches have plumbing solder and flux in stock from Lawton Tubes. We also stock a range of other fluxes from such suppliers as Laco and Fernox.
Plumbing solder from Lawton Tubes is availabe in 500g reels in both lead and lead-free versions. Also available is Lawton Flux which is a paste suitable for use with copper plumbing in both 113g and 453g jars and includes a brush.
Leaded solders can be used for non-drinking water systems such as closed circuit central heating pipework, where the water is not required to be wholesome.Lead free solders are available for end-feed use, the use of a solder such as number 23 tin/copper alloy soft solder will ensure that lead levels are not a problem.
