Four feet (48") of wire.**

93% pure copper solder / brazing wire. 7% phosphorus

Flow Temp: 1460 F 793 C

Flow: Fast

Best Uses: Copper, brass, bronze. Always flux brass and bronze joints. No need to use flux on copper but flux will help with preventing some firescale.

A tiny quantity of this is all you need for torch soldering bezels and jump rings! I use this to solder jump rings and bezels made from the #110 copper wire that I also sell. Please note that I do not claim for this material to be a "color match." Depending upon how you use it, it may or may not match your copper. For example, after filing and/or sanding a soldered joint this solder will look grey. But do not despair! Simply heat it back up with your torch until you see a color change. The heat from the flame will bring the copper back up to the surface to give you the copper color. If you are just starting out, practice is the key!

(The second picture shows a sample pure copper chain I made using this brazing wire and 18 gauge #110 bare copper wire. I have even used this solder and the 24ga copper strip I offer to make some really funky belt buckles for my son's steampunk costume! I will try to show you guys a picture soon).

Cut with medium to heavy wire cutters or preferably with solder cutting pliers (your best flush cutting pliers are not recommended). Soldering your own metal pieces is fun! Cut into tiny pieces using your wire cutters inside a plastic bag to keep the pieces from flying around the room. Use safety glasses to protect your eyes from flying pieces of solder! Do not cut solder in the presence of children or others without eye protection. Avoid creating and breathing metal dust and fumes in an non-ventilated space. Always have a carbon monoxide detector in the room with you! Have fun and be safe creating what you imagine.

Use caution when opening the roll to prevent the ends of the coil from springing into face and eyes.

**Please note: This is for use with proper equipment, namely a torch. I use this with a micro butane torch that can achieve a pinpoint flame hot enough to melt the solder along with a proper substrate, such as a charcoal block or fire brick. Your choice of fuel can and does matter and I have found that inexpensive butane will produce an inferior flame. Therefore, I am not responsible for your individual results as I have no control over your expertise or your choice of tools and equipment. I can offer some help if you need it, but I am not able to provide in-depth training in the use of this material. When, and if, video tutorials are available, a link will be provided in this listing. Used solder is not refundable under any circumstances. I no longer accept returns once this solder is cut or used.

International shipping costs apply to packages up to 8.0 ounces.

Works perfectly, very happy! So much easier to use than silver solder, and a way better match for the copper I work with. I am a novice, in the hands of someone more skilled this stuff would be even better. I used it to solder the bezel in the pic. Will be ordering more.

Good match for my electroplating. But, it's very hard to melt with only a propane torch. So just be aware of that. Other wise great stuff.
