ComStar expands production and availability of its revolutionary no-heat solder for all metal types, Metal Lock Black

With worldwide use of hydrocarbon refrigerants in home appliances and soon-to-be introduced air-conditioning-systems, the industry needs a safe, fast and easy-to-use no heat solder like Metal Lock Black for trade professionals servicing these systems.

ComStar International Inc., a leader in the development and marketing of environmentally safe, industrial strength, chemical products for the HVACR, plumbing, Indoor Air Quality, Food Process and Public Area Cleaning industries will expand production and distribution of its revolutionary “no heat” polymer solder for pipes and fittings for all metal types, Metal Lock Black. It’s easy to apply, fast to test pressure and permanent. Metal Lock Black is strongly recommended when making repairs to systems using hydrocarbon refrigerants.    

Building on the success of ComStar’s Copper Lock, a no heat solder for copper/brass pipe and fittings, Metal Lock Black can be used on aluminum, black iron, steel, copper, brass and more, on unthreaded or threaded pipes and fittings. Technicians need only to sand the unthreaded areas to be joined, apply a small amount of Metal Lock Black to the fitting and pipe, insert, and, if possible, turn the pipe 180 degrees or more. Pipes are ready for handling in just 30 seconds, and, depending on system operating values, ready for pressure-testing after two minutes. For threaded fittings simply apply Metal Lock Black as you would a normal thread sealant.

Metal Lock Black will set up a permanent leak-proof bond in seconds. It seals against most fluids, refrigerants, gases and chemicals and will withstand extreme vibration. Metal Lock Black has a temperature range of –65 to +350 degrees F (-54 to 177 Celsius) and can withstand shear pressure up to 2,200 psi (ISO 10123). It is non-toxic and meets several US military specifications.

Steven P. Mella, ComStar’s CEO, said, “With worldwide use of hydrocarbon refrigerants in home appliances and soon-to-be-introduced air conditioning systems, the industry needs a safe, fast and easy-to-use no heat solder for trade professionals servicing these systems. In addition, today’s air conditioning systems have joined aluminum coils and copper tubing that will require a no heat solder solution when repairing and joining these mis-matched metals. It is for this reason that we have expanded our Metal Lock Black production and have made it available through our ComStar network of companies and affiliates in the U.S., Japan, China and Europe. ComStar is very proud to have Metal Lock Black in our family of over 300 individual chemical products used by service and maintenance professionals across many industry lines worldwide.”

ComStar is licensed as the exclusive U.S. and China manufacturer and distributor of the new extreme energy-saving, zero Global Warming Potential and Ozone Depletion Potential blended-hydrocarbon refrigerant, R441a. Metal Lock Black has been tested by independent laboratories and is approved for use with hydrocarbons.

Metal Lock Black is available now through a network of U.S. HVACR and appliance wholesalers and soon will be internationally. Visit our website at http://www.comstarproducts.com for a wholesaler near you.
