Customer Questions & Answers

How many inches of solder are on the spool?

Asked by: KBD
Hi KBD—unfortunately, length of Solder spools is not specified, it's just measured in weight. This is a 1/2lb spool

Is lead free solder safe to use on electrical wire?

I have a spool of Oatey Safe Flo Silver solder # 29024. Can I safely use this to solder a 6 volt wire splice?
Asked by: Stormin
Tin-Copper-Bismuth-Silver alloys, yes, this is much stronger (12300 psi) than tin-lead (3900), it does not creep, and does not crystallize from vibration. I use safe-flo WITH ROSIN FLUX! for automotive applications and other places where there is vibration. Do not use plumbing flux on electrics. Using heavy plumbing wire is awkward, but safe flo handles OK for electrics, wets well. Tin-Antimony (95-5) is not useable for electrics. See "Database for Solder Properties with Emphasis on New Lead-free Solders" www.msed.nist.gov/solder/NIST_LeadfreeSolder_v4.pdf.

"Copper, bismuth, tin and silver alloy"?

Is it correct to label this a "Copper, bismuth, tin and silver alloy" if it has no silver? Or if the silver is in trace amounts, they should label all the other trace elements, I'm betting it's not 99.999% spectroscopic grade materials and it has trace amounts of lead, as well.
Asked by: homedepotcustomer
See Database for Solder Properties with Emphasis on New Lead-free Solders, Alloy F1 for instance. This is 2% silver, 7.5% Bismuth and 0.5% copper, the balance Tin. This is is one of the stronger lead free soft solders, and has much better mechanical properties than Tin Lead. It has good wetting and handles well, but requires clean metal. I also use it for electrical applications with rosin flux where there is vibration.

Safe-Flo 8 oz. Lead-Free Silver Solder is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Contains No Silver!!!!!!!!! Not a silver solder. Tested using XRF technology - Silver below limit of detection. Showed 97.5% Tin, 1.6% Copper, .9% Bismuth. Shame!
Date published: 2012-01-31
Rated 4 out of 5 by from GOOD BRAND, PRODUCT AND QUALITY I HAVE USED OTHER OATELY LEAD FREE SOLDERS THAT PERFORMED WELL FOR ME. IF THIS SOLDER DOESN'T HAVE ANY SILVER IN IT THEN IT SHOULDN'T SAY SILVER ON THE PACKAGING.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from To the poster above. I think you need to do a bit more research. This is an Alloy Sb-5 Solder. that means it is supposed to be 95% Tin, and 5% Antimony. This solder is commonly used for residential water plumbing as it contains no lead, and is fairly easy to work with.
