BCuP-3 Silver PhosCopper Brazing Rod - 5% Silver - Flat - 1/8" x 0.05" x 20"
Silver Phos-Copper 5% and was developed primarily for use on copper, but its use has extended to other nonferrous copper base alloys. It is used extensively on refrigeration units, air conditioning apparatus, electrical conductors, copper and brass pipe fittings, and other copper and brass equipment.
Silver Phos-Copper 5% is a copper-rich, filler metal that is self-fluxing on copper by virtue of its phosphorus content. The self-fluxing property of this filler metals is effective on copper only. With copper-based alloys, such as brass or bronze, the joints should be fluxed. Silver Phos-Copper 5% should not be used on nickel-base and iron-base alloys, as the phosphorus reacts with the nickel or iron to form brittle compounds at the interface of the joints.
Silver Phos-Copper 5% should not be used where the joints are exposed to sulfur compounds, especially in gases or oils at temperatures above normal room temperature. As the corrosion by sulfur is cumulative, even very small percentages will eventually cause failure of the joint disintegration. Exposure to pressured steam can also result in accelerated corrosion.
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.
