Solder on charcoal for great heat reflection 140 x 70 x 30mm
NZ $35.00
excl GST
Qty.

Jewellers have been soldering on charcoal blocks as a refractory material for centuries.
Blocks are compressed and hard so can be carved and molten metals can be cast into the surface.
Charcoal blocks have several benefits.

  • They absorb very little heat and reflect it back, causing pieces to heat up faster.
  • They provide a reducing atmosphere (this consumes the oxygen around the piece being soldered which helps to prevent fire scale)
  • They can have pins shoved right into them.
  • Broken pieces can be re-used.
  • The surface can be re-sanded to like-new.
  • They’re made of compressed organic material. Wood, such as ash, beech, oak, walnut, elm, and a few others
