El uso de este anglicismo en castellano, dado su arraigo en el ámbitos de las artes del fuego, pueden ser los siguientes:

  1. flux (cerámica), se usa en Argentina para algunas fritas de cerámica de bajo punto de fusión (750º/800º). El flux es un fundente, su función es la de bajar la temperatura de fusión (fluir a una temperatura inferior), a los esmaltes, y oxidos fijándolo a la base.
  2. Flux (vidrio) se ha usado indistintamente para designar comercialmente a los fundentes para colores sobre vidrio.
  3. flux (metalurgia), es el nombre comercial, que se les da a las sustancias decapantes que eliminan la capa de óxido que interfiere con la soldadura.
