Is this effective with stainless steel?

Closing stainless steel jump rings
Asked by: Jj
The trick to successful soldering of stainless steel alloys is to use a strong acid based flux to break away the really thick protective oxide layer on the stainless steel. This chromium oxide layer is what stops the stainless from rusting and it must first be mechanically abraded away and then quickly treated with the proper stainless acid flux to keep the steel chemically clean so that the solder will bond to the stainless alloy. Most stainless solders are a standard 4% silver, 96% Tin but you can try this one too to see how it performs. If mechanical strength of the bond is important, using the proper silver solder is probably worth the extra expensive and search for the right product. For ultimate strength welding is the way to go with a stainless grade welding wire or rod etc.

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.
