  • Many surface finishes are solderable with the right flux. Many of our electronic devices use solder to bond copper, silver, gold, and other metals, but did you know that you can solder wooden surfaces too? Soldering to wood is easy with the correct flux.

    There are many great uses for wood bonding:

    • Grounding static sensitive antique furniture
    • Harnessing “green energy” from trees
    • Electrical resistance testing of hardwoods and softwoods


    Happy April Fool’s Day!
