BCuP-6 Silver PhosCopper Brazing Rod - 2% Silver - Flat - 1/8" x 0.05" x 20"
SILVER PHOS-COPPER 2% 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 good fit up can be maintained.
Silver Phos-Copper 2% is a copper rich, filler metal that is self-fluxing on copper by virtue of its phosphorus content. SILVER PHOS-COPPER 2% has good flow and wetting properties on copper, brass, and bronze. Its melting characteristics are such that on the low end of its brazing temperature range it has "sluggish" flow characteristics which enable it to fill gaps better, making it ideal for loose-fitting joints.
The self-fluxing property of SILVER PHOS-COPPER 2% is effective on copper only. Copper base alloys, such as brass or bronze, may be brazed with SILVER PHOS-COPPER 2% but cannot be used on ferrous metals or nickel base alloys, since the phosphorus produces brittle iron or nickel phosphorus 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. When brazing copper alloys, the properties of joints with good fit-up should exhibit adequate performance.
