Thread: Silver solder 4%?

    Default Silver solder 4%?

    Silver solder 4%?

    What is the difference between Silvabrite 96/4 and Stay Brite 96/4 silver solder?
    Just curious why Silvabrite is listed as 6,000 psi tensil and Stay Brite as 14,000 tensil strength?

    don't know the answer but I would compare a few more manufacturers. whoever's numbers are the farthest out of wack are either bad at math, Geniuses or liars.

    One thing to note is the composition is different.

    96% tin, 4% silver.

    I've never had a "lead free" joint come apart.
    The copper will break and tear before the joint does.
