A certain amount of silver formula is usually suitable for hand soldering stainless steel and copper fittings. It has a wider mud or plastic range that allows the user to operate parts during the cooling process.
These alloys are used in electronics, manufacturing, piping, food containers, storage tanks, instruments, copper pipes and refrigerator cooling coils.
The low melting point temperature prevents loss of performance and minimizes distortion of thin wires and sheets. In many cases, after bonding with tin-silver solder, there is a stronger overall assembly than a higher temperature silver braze alloy. The solder is certified for use in potable water systems.
