Press Release Summary:
Applicable for wave soldering, Dross-B-Gone can recover 90% of pure solder originally used. Effective with both lead-free and lead solders, powder eliminates dross by oxidizing it into removable powder that is discarded, while pure molten solder remains in pot and becomes completely reusable. Non-polluting powder is sprinkled on molten solder at approximate ratio of 1/3 oz per 35.3 oz of solder dross; pure solder recovery rate is 31 oz.

Manncorp's 'Dross-B-Gone(TM)' Powder Recycles Solder by Separating the Dross
A relatively inexpensive and easy-to-use powder that separates dross from molten solder is now available from Manncorp. Applicable for wave soldering and other processes involving considerable volumes of solder, "Dross-B-Gone" is claimed to recover in several minutes almost 90% of the pure solder originally used.
The powder, effective with both lead-free and lead solders, eliminates dross by quickly oxidizing it into an easily removable powder that is discarded, while pure molten solder remains in the pot and becomes completely reusable. Dross-B-Gone enables assemblers to reduce the cost of solder by eliminating the need to refine this high-cost consumable or recovering only a small portion of its value by selling it to salvagers or recyclers.
The non-polluting powder is merely sprinkled on the molten solder at an approximate ratio of 10 grams (1/3 oz.) per 1000 grams (35.3 oz.) of solder dross. The pure solder recovery rate is 880 grams (31 oz.). Dross-B-Gone is priced at $495 for an 800-gram (28.2 oz.) container. A trial size 100-gram (3.5 oz.) jar is $95. For details, access
