Designed to protect metal surfaces from the flow of molten brazing filler metal or to prevent metal surfaces from adhering to each other during furnace brazing, Wall Colmonoy’s Stop-Off products are available in two grades: fast drying Type I (lacquer based), and nonflammable Type II (water based).
SELECTING THE RIGHT STOP-OFF™ FOR YOUR APPLICATION
Often we are asked which Nicrobraz® Stop-Off™ product best fits their application, so we created a Nicrobraz® News Issue to provide some tips on .

- Yellow Stop-Off™
General purpose. For use in controlled atmosphere furnace work. Easier removal than Green Stop-Off™. Recommended for silver brazing with heavy flux and molten salt bath brazing. Prevents filler metal flow into threads, holes and cast surfaces.
- White Stop-Off™
A parting compound for furnace use to prevent accidental brazing of adjoining surfaces. Specially formulated to prevent contamination of base or filler metal.
- Red Stop-Off™
A parting compound designed for furnace use. Chemically soluble, assures 100% removal after brazing. For use on parts with small internal holes, fine threads or wire screens.
- Orange Stop-Off™
Specially formulated for use on reactive metals, such as titanium and zirconium, and super-alloys. Acts as lubricant. For use in high vacuum furnaces.
- Blue Stop-Off™
