An environmentally friendly solder flux generating tremendous excitement in the manufacturing world has been licensed for general sale by Hughes Aircraft Co., the giant aerospace company said Wednesday. The agreement allows a division of Litton Industries to be the sole U.S. manufacturer and distributor of the material, which can significantly reduce the use of ozone-damaging chlorofluorocarbons by industry. The material is made from lemon juice instead of rosin.

When a softer alloy metal--called solder--is melted between two pieces of metal, they bond. Among solder's many uses are sheet-metal work, electrical wiring, jewelry-making and repairs. Common solder is a tin-and-lead mix. A 60-40 solder (60% tin, 40% lead) is the most expensive, but it makes the strongest bond and is easiest to work with because of its low melting point. Less expensive 40-60 solder is more difficult to use. A 50-50 solder is a good compromise between cost and ease of use.
