Answer: 
Hopefully you didn't try to use these brazing rods on aluminum, because with pure aluminum having a melting temp just north of 1200 degrees F, and these needing about 1600 degrees F to melt... chances are you would no longer have your aluminum in its original shape or form!

The answer to your question is both a yes and no. Here's why that is the case. Yes you can, in the absolute sense, use this product on copper, but shouldn't for the main reason that it flows at around 1700 degrees F., and copper melts at a bit hotter than 1900 deg. F. Unless you're very experienced, chances are that you would melt the copper too! Additionally, this product is much, much stronger than the Read More
The answer to your question is both a yes and no. Here's why that is the case. Yes you can, in the absolute sense, use this product on copper, but shouldn't for the main reason that it flows at around 1700 degrees F., and copper melts at a bit hotter than 1900 deg. F. Unless you're very experienced, chances are that you would melt the copper too! Additionally, this product is much, much stronger than the underlying copper, which will be altered by the extreme heating process to be noticeably softer than before. So.... yes, but a very bad idea!
Though your question didn't ask for alternative ideas, here's what experienced folks would use: either a phosphorus bearing brazing rod, or any of the high-content silver brazing rod / wire and flux. Though the various alloys have differing flowing temperatures, all flow at temperatures at or below 1500 deg. F. The phosphorus bearing types are self-fluxing, thus making them the most popular for joining copper, while the high silver content brazing materials with flux offer better high vibration resistance, at higher cost. These alternatives are a much better choice for joining copper than bronze brazing rods, which work well on steel, etc. Read Less

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by They work well enough, but you only get 3 rods in the package. The fill material is a good bronze and the flux coating shields it well, in short, they work well. The description doesn't mention that the working temperature is 1620°F, 882°C, and the stated material strength is 60ksi. Compared to other retail offerings like the Lincoln Electric flux coated brazing rods also sold at Home Depot, these rods are an exceptionally poor value. The Bernzomatic WB5 is 3 3/32" rods with flux coating for $4, the Lincoln Electric KH515 is 1 lb which is 20 1/8" rods with flux coating for $6.50. Lincoln Electric also has 3/32" brazing rods for sale in home centers, but they are a special order item at Home Depot. June 21, 2015
