Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Worked great for a small stained glass repair
First let me say I used this once. But it did a fine job and was easy to use..
I used to make stained glass panels but had to give it up because of the expense and the economy. I ended up selling the last of my excellent professional solder, and got rid of the flux, which goes bad after so much time.
One of my wall panels broke recently when it fell, I only needed to solder one joint, so I didn't want to spent all the money on a pound of solder and flux. I saw this product on Home Depot and thought, for the price, let's give it a try.
After cleaning the joint with steel wool, i put on the flux, and using my (very hot) soldering iron made the repair quickly. I am usually leery of solder that is lead free, because while safer it usually doesn't work as well as the leaded. Plus, the solder in this package is a very thin coil, totally different from the professional stained glass solder which comes in sizes of one quarter inch up to half inch. But still this worked and that's what matters.
I recommend this for small stained glass repairs. Unfortunately I can't assess it for plumbing or anything else, but I think it would be fine. I ordered this online, and it was shipped to the store. It arrived in about a week.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by keysjeweler no corrosion
this product is a relatively low temperature soft solder which means it can be used with a soldering iron or gun. Since the flux is an acid base it cannot be used for electriconic connections but for about everything else it is exquisite. I have used this for years and find that even after long periods of time there is little loss of the near mirror like finish and it is exceptionally strong when used to hold two metals together.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by deanw Very good solder
This is a good, strong solder with some of the best flux I've ever used. The flux really cleans the metal well, which lets the solder flow for an excellent joint. I've used this brand for years in my restoration work. Top quality product.
