BCuP-2 PhosCopper Brazing Rod - 0% Silver - Flat - 1/8" x 0.05" x 20"
SÜA Phos-Copper 0% is a low-cost brazing filler metal suitable for joining copper to copper & copper to copper alloys where critical impact or vibration stresses are not encountered in service. It should only be used on assemblies where a good fit can be maintained. Application assemblies include heat exchanger return bends, hot water cylinders and refrigeration points.
SÜA Phos-Copper 0% is a copper-rich, intermediate temperature, brazing filler metal that is moderately free-flowing & self-fluxing on copper (only) by virtue of its phosphorus content. It liquates slightly more than a 7% Phosphorus Copper when heated rapidly. Induction Brazing will produce better mechanical properties in general than torch brazing. Best results are obtained with joint clearances of .001-.003”
The self-fluxing property of SÜA Phos-Copper 0% is effective on copper only. Copper base alloys, such as brass or bronze, may be brazed with SÜA Phos-Copper 0% if the joints are coated with flux. SÜA Phos-Copper 0% should not be used on ferrous metals or nickel base allows, since the phosphorus produces brittle iron or nickel phosphides at the joint interface.
The properties of a brazed joint are dependent upon numerous factors including base metal properties, joint design, metallurgical interaction between the base metal and the filler metal. Joints made with SÜA Phos-Copper 0% are entirely satisfactory on copper and copper alloys if good fit-up and adequate shear area are maintained.
