  • Boric acid flux should be used to keep the metal clean during the melting process. The molten metal should be mixed well with a stirring rod before pouring to assure a good mix. Remove the ingot from the mold & allow to air cool (which will allow the alloy to be much softer) – do not quench. Soak in a hot pickling solution to remove surface oxides
