  • Retains bright finish, similar to stainless steel

High strength silver-bearing solder melts and flows at 430 degrees F. Provides strength without the distortion caused by high temperature brazing.

Tensile strength 10,000 to 25,000 P.S.I.

Elongation: 49%. Vibration resistant.

Directions For Torch Soldering:

  1. Apply Stay-Clean soldering flux to parts to be soldered.
  2. Stay-Clean removes all oxides, preparing the metals for soldering.
  3. Heat the parts and apply Stay-Brite silver solder .
