What is this flux made out of?

    Does anyone actually know what this is made out of if indeed it is made out of something? Are there any theories?

    flux is just a way of mathematically describing the strength of a field through an area (or volume, or whatever)

    Unless, by chance, the question might refer to welding flux. That's a chemical used to purge impurities from a bead and promote the flow of metal.
