Default So many metal joining methods How to decide . Stay-Brite Silver solder

Is there a Expert that can tell us How strong these are , how to decide what to use ??

I have both of these to use but the stay-brite is so much easier to use.

Stay brite silver solder

saftey silv 56, Brazing with mapp gas

Any others ?

Thanks

the silver content is what makes it strong. ie: harris 56 is stronger than 45, with harris the number is the silver content

mapp vs butane dos'nt matter with the strength. diff gasses just heat up the material to be "welded" faster than others. I'm actualy not sure about butane compared to mapp, I use mapp and it works fine....

so basically you would use Mapp gas because the silve content is higher therefore it needs more heat


Why use silv 56 with mapp gas which costs more then just a butane torch and silver solder such as stay-brite or ultragrip

You wanna get in and out with the heat as quick as possible. Silver solder flows at a lower temperature than silver brazing alloys. Silver solder is just as good, its just used where heating a component (like a refrigeration valve) to join to copper at lower temperatures, where brazing would ruin parts inside the valve.
