Silver Brazing Solder Rod - Bare - 45% - AWS BAg-5 - Size: 1/16" x 18"

  • 45% Silver Brazing is a cadmium-free alloy with an intermediate melting temperature range of (145°F/63°C) with good fillet forming properties, the plastic range of this rod gives an advantage when filling loose connections. This 45% silver alloy has good joint strength and ductility at a moderately higher temperature.
  • Complies with ANSI/AWS A5.8 ASME SFA 5.8, QQ-B-654A Class BAg-5 specifications. It can be used for brazing of tubular assemblies, brazing of musical brass instruments, brass lamps, aircraft engine oil coolers. 45% Silver is a general-purpose, brazing filler metal for use where cadmium-free filler metal is required.
  • The final properties of a joint brazed with 45% Silver are dependent upon numerous factors including base metal properties, joint design and metallurgical interaction between the base metal and the filler metal.
  • Diameter of rod: 1/16” - Length: 18” - No flux is required for copper brazing. For brazing brass or copper to brass, use white silver brazing flux.
  • Available in 3, 5 and 9 Sticks Packages. Select your option from the menu.
  • This kit includes a 6.5 Oz jar of our top-quality Silver-Flux #1 with a convenient brush attached to the cap for an easier flux application.

* Remove any oil, grease, or other contaminants from the surface to be brazed. 
* Apply flux to joint by dipping, swabbing or brushing area being brazed. The flux may be used as supplied or diluted. 
* Apply heat, by torch, induction or other means to area being brazed after flux has been applied to activate the flux. 
* Feed the braze alloy into the joint, unless a brazing preform is already in place. 
* Clean flux residues from brazed joint using hot water (60°C ± 5°C / 140°F ± 10°F) for best results. If unavailable, room temperature water may also be used.
