Questions & Answers

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
Absolutely safe to use your Safe Flo solder on electrical work but be aware of acid based flux residue that can continue to corrode the wires and insulation long after you have finished the solder joint. A water based flux is a good idea so you can clean up the solder joint with a wipe down to remove corrosive salts after completing the job. Rosin core lead free solder is good choice for electrical work to avoid the mess and messy cleanup when using acid fluxes. Rosin does not corrode electrical wires and splices so it can be left to coat and protect the solder after reflow is completed.

Is this effective with stainless steel?

Closing stainless steel jump rings
Asked by: Jj
No. We don't offer a product that can be used with stainless steel. This is normally a brazing application.

Safe-Flo 8 oz. Lead-Free Silver Solder is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 4.

McGyver needs to do some more research before claiming this is a 95% Tin 5% Antimony solder. Oatey makes more than one lead free solder, Home Depot does carry the Oatey antimony lead free solder but it is not recommended for general plumbing repairs for some very important reasons. The Oatey Safe Flow solder has a much lower melting point (liquidus about 50 F lower) than 5% Antimony 95% Tin solder alloys. That is important when sweating ball valves with teflon internals etc. Lower temp reflow means easier repairs for homeowners and less torch heating and time to melt / flow. Also please note that all 5% Antimony based solders are NOT recommended for use on brass fittings / valves or plumbing components. They are good for refrigeration lines and factory solder stations but not home plumbing repairs unless done by the plumbing pros with specific knowledge of limitations in use. The Oatey Safe Flow solder SDS states 1-5% silver content so the dude who analyzed the sample may be on to a change in the solder formulation due to very high silver prices. Tin isn't cheap anymore either at 10 bucks per pound spot sprices, hence the 40 dollar per pound price full retail for a lead free solder.

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!

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.
