    It is a brand name. As noted, ERSIN and Loctite were originally Connecticut based companies.

    Henkel AG & Company, KGaA, the German chemical and consumer goods company, headquartered in Düsseldorf, Germany, acquired both Loctite and Ersin in 1997.
    The Ersin solder products are now under the “Loctite” Adhesives portfolio.

    I think the acid is to deal with oil environments , like automotive , for me soldering copper radiators , flux does not handle oil-based environments .
    Plumbing uses flux , and as of many yrs. ago - code for plumbing left lead behind .

    I met Sal once. Bad reputation. Almost as bad as Sal Hepatica.
    Geez! Growing up in Vegas was fun in the 1940s and 50s!

    Sal Monella was the worst acquaintance.

    Right on the corner of Main and Fremont, across the street from the UPRR station, was
    Sal Sagev (a casino/hotel by that name). That was Las Vegas, backwards and forwards.

    Yeah, Monella was a sicko. But his sister took after a nicer side of the "Sal" line. She even appeared in a Walt Disney movie. You remember Sal Agadoola?

    His sister Sally (she also went by "Sal") took after a nicer side of the family. She even appeared in a Walt Disney movie. You remember Sal Agadoola?

    There's a popular diner here called Minella's.

    Locals refer to it as Sal's.

    Getting back to solder, I have a five-pound roll of heavy rosin-core that must be from the 1950s. I use it on ground connections in old radios and TV sets, and it still solders well. The old flux definitely has a different smell, compared to the new.
