The physical properties of agglomerated flux ANF-6-1 were studied. It is shown that the agglomerated flux is identical to the fused flux of the same grade by the chemical composition, melting temperature, electric conductivity and viscosity. Accordingly, the technical and economical characteristics of ESR by using the mentioned fluxes are almost similar. Ref. 8, Tables 3, Figures 2.
