Flux & Patina Cleaner
Eliminates 'White Mold' caused by flux and/or patina corroding your project. No longer need to wash your project in water. To neutralize the flux or patina, just spray on Kwik-Clean and wipe off.
Works on copper foil (soldered) and lead (soldered joints).
The Kwik-Clean solution is a liquid, not a gel. So it goes under the foil (in the air pockets where patina can be hiding) and neutralizes the flux and patina. This is the area where White Mold starts to form.
The Kwik-Clean solution, when sprayed on the solder joint, easily rolls completely around the joint removing all the flux. After the patina is applied, Kwik-Clean goes into the little pockets left in the putty and neutralizes any patina hiding there.
Kwik-Clean is a liquid which wipes off with just a paper towel.
No need to use water, unlike the gel types of neutralizers.
No need to mix or dilute. After you have completed soldering one or both sides of your project, spray on Kwik-Clean. Typically, with a paper towel to clean the project thoroughly.
You may use the same paper towel or use a clean one to apply the patina. Mixing the Kwik-Clean with the Patina gives added cleaning of the flux and a finer tone on the patina.
After Patina is applied, clean again with Kwik-Clean to neutralize the flux.
Polish as you normally would.
On pieces where White Mold is already present:
- Clean off the white mold with steel wool. (To remove the particles of steel wool, use a vacuum or magnet)
- Patina the areas that were the patina was removed.
- Clean the area with Kwik-Clean.
