in metallurgy flux is a chemical cleaning, flowing or purifying agent . 
fluxes have more than one function at a time , 
they are used in both extractive mettalurgy and metal joining . 
when the flux is heated with ore , it combines with the earthly impurities and forms a fusible mass known as slag . 
slag is lighter metal and can be easily removed from the surface of molten metal . 
there is two typoes of flux . 
1- acidic flux 
2- besic flux . 
HOPE IT HELPS
