What is 45% silver solder used for?

They are mainly used for the brazing of ferrous metals or non-ferrous metals with non-ferrous metals. 45% silver flux-coated brazing alloys are widely applied in the household appliance, HVAC/R, and electric machinery industries.

How do you use silver bearing solder paste?

Using a torch (recommended for most applications), place tip of flame 1/2″ from solder paste and evenly heat metal from one end of joint to the other, back and forth until paste breaks down and flows out (this will occur when metal temperature reaches 430°F).

What kind of flux do you use with silver solder?

Silver Solder & Brazing Flux Tenacity 5™ is a powder flux effective with alloys that melt below 850˚C. It is particularity useful for use with silver brazing filler metals and when brazing stainless steel components.

What is stronger silver solder or brazing?

Soldering, in addition to having a lower processing temperature, typically results in a lower-strength joint than a brazed joint. For many applications, this is suitable and even desirable. The shear strength of brazed joints typically exceeds that of soldered joints by a factor of five.

Is silver solder stronger than brazing?

Do you need flux with solder paste?

Electronic boards require either ‘flux-cored solder’ for hand use, or ‘solder paste’, which is a mixture of small solder balls in a suitable flux, for machine use. This flux is likely to be too aggressive to leave on a board, and will require cleaning, otherwise it’s likely to damage the board.

How strong is silver solder paste?

Because it uses the ultra-find powder, the silver solder paste has a strong bond – 10x strong than typical 60/40 solder. With the microscopic size of the metal particles it creates an extremely low melting point.

Does silver solder need special flux?

These are available with either 2% or 5% Silver and are used primarily for joining Copper to Copper, where, if the metal is clean, no Flux need be used. Silver Solder can be used to join most common metals, including Mild Steel, Stainless Steel, Copper, Brass, Cast Iron and Dissimilar Metals.

Can I use brazing flux for silver solder?

Silver Solder & Brazing Flux Available in powder form, Easy-flo™ flux can be used alongside Silver-flo™ on most common engineering metals including copper. Tenacity 5™ is a powder flux effective with alloys that melt below 850˚C.
