Metron® Specialty Fluids

LIQUID 2-WAY TAPE

LIQUID 2-WAY TAPE is an excellent pressure sensitive adhesive. It is an adhesive which dries in about 20 minutes to a “tacky” surface, does not tend to harden or get sticky with time.

It may be applied to nuts or bolts for “vibration proofing”. The bolt may be removed over and over again. It adheres to Teflon. Use also for prepositioning parts, and film overlays.

Liquid 2-way tape is available in our standard tip pen in Clear (L2) and Yellow (L2Y).

METRONLUBE-1 LUBRICANT

METRONLUBE-1- ELECTRICAL CONTACT LUBRICANT is an excellent electrical contact lubricant which is very effective even where contact force is high. It is colorless, chemically neutral, water repellent, physiologically safe, light, weather proof and does not volatize easily. It protects base metals against corrosion and oxidation.

A thin film reduces the coefficient of friction for copper, silver or gold-plated surfaces to 0.05-0.15 and can increase the life of hard gold-plated contacts by as much as 100 times. It is excellent for contacts such as P.C. Board “fingers” because it prevents oxides and sulfides from forming and increasing electrical resistance.

Where long life is important, this contact lubricant is superior to mineral based products, is thermally stable, silicon free _won’t sum or vaporize has good wetting properties on metal, does not combine with water, has optimum viscosity with low temperature coefficients and a relatively low specific-resistance.

Metronlube-1 is also an excellent high-grade, non-gumming, non-vaporizing lubricant for mechanical uses from –55ºC to =250ºC.

Metronlube-1 is available in our standard tip pen.

SOLDER FLUXES

Solder Fluxes, available in RMA (SFRMA), Red RMA (SFRMA1), no clean (SFNC) and water clean (SFWC) formulations, come preloaded in our Microtip markers.

SOLDER MASK

Metron® Solder Mask is available in two formulations (Water Soluble and Water Peelable) and is loaded in our standard tip marker allowing you to get the mask where you want it and not where you don’t.Metron® Water Soluble Solder Mask (Blue)
Our water soluble mask protects PC boards plated thru holes, contacts, pins, posts, terminals and gold fingers during wave soldering or reflow, and is a solder masking agent.

Its characteristics are as follows:
  • Plastic safe
  • Nonflammable
  • Ozone safe
  • Rinses off with water cleaning systems
  • UV detectable
  • Noncorrosive
  • Safe for sensitive metals like gold, silver, and copper
  • Can be used as a water soluble tacking compound
  • RoHS Compliant

Metron® Water Soluble Peelable (Pink)
The Metron® Water Soluble Peelable is a peelable temporary solder masking agent.

It’s characteristics are as follows:
  • Tack-free drying in 30 minutes
  • Simple to use- just peel off the dried masking agent
  • Latex material works with flux systems and is resistant to cleaning solvents
  • Perfect for protecting contacts during wave soldering
  • Can be used as a protective mask during conformal coating processes for: switches, pins, posts, contact, and edge connections
  • RoHS Compliant
  • Loaded in our standard tip marker

Solder Flux SFRMA

  • Stable in high heat
  • Residue is moisture and fungus resistant
  • Proprietary tip allows for precise placement of flux
  • Tip will not melt

Metron Marker “Transflour”

Metron Marker “Transfluor” is invisible permanent ink that fluoresces blue under UV light and is ideal for warranty dating or for discrete markings. Transparent Ink comes standard in Micro-tip.


Metron® GluePen

For years, Metron® has offered multi-purpose adhesives that are perfect for odd jobs around the home or office, ideal for repairs around the office, for arts and crafts or in the workshop. Because it is pre-loaded in the Metron® Marker, you can deliver the glue with extreme precision. Metron® glue dries clear and can be used on a variety of surfaces. There will most certainly come a time when you will need to use a multi-purpose glue for something, so keep these handy. Trust us – you’ll be glad you did.

MetronLOCK – threadlocker

  • METRONLOCK – threadlocker is designed for the locking and sealing of threaded fasteners which require disassembly with standard hand tools. The product cures when confined in the absence of air between close fitting metal surfaces. It protects threads from rust and corrosion and prevents loosening from shock and vibration.
  • SPECIAL NOTE: Not recommended for use on plastic parts, particularly thermoplastic materials where stress cracking of the plastic could result. It is also not recommended for use in pure oxygen and/or oxygen rich systems and should not be selected as a sealant for chlorine or other strong oxidizing materials.

METRONLOCK- threadLocker is available in three formulations: MetronLock L22LP – Low Strength Purple (5ml) – Compare to Loctite 222

  • Designed for precision metal fasteners under 3/4″.
  • Protects threads from rust and corrosion.
  • Removable with hand tools.
  • Ideal for fastener diameters of 1/4″ and smaller.
  • Controlled lubricity for accurate clamp loads.
  • Parts can be separated using hand tools.

MetronLock L42MB Medium Strength Blue (5ml) – compare to Loctite 242

  • Designed for metal fasteners 1/4′ (6 mm) to 3/4′ (19 mm)
  • Suited for applications on less active substrates such as stainless steel and plated surfaces, where disassembly is required for servicing.
  • Protects threads from rust and corrosion.
  • Ideal for bolts on small engines, swing sets and furniture

MetronLock L71HR – High Strength Red (5ml) – Compare to Loctite 271

  • Designed for the permanent locking and sealing of threaded fasteners
  • Use on metal fasteners up to 1″ (25 mm) in diameter such as bolts on decks, ready-to-assemble furniture, mounts, rings, gear bolts and frame bolts
  • Prevents loosening from shock and vibration.
  • Protects threads from rust and corrosion.
  • It is only removable once cured by heating up parts to 500°F (260°C).
