Other sites list it as 40/60 meaning 60% lead. 60/40 or 63/37 would have a lower melting point than 575 F

Is there lead in this solder?can I use it for plumbing on copper tubing for water. CarlD

Asked by CarlD January 19, 2017

Answers

This solid core (needs applied flux) solder is 60% lead and 40% tin. It is not recommended for use with copper water supply piping due to concerns over lead leaching into drinking water. As a result, manufacturers now market lead-free products that can be much more expensive. This Forney solder was about $10 (1 lb.); a lead-free solder, promoted as a plumbing product at my local store, cost the equivalent of $112 per pound.

It worked well for my application at a good price compared to other options. I used it to add weight to the wheels of my RC4WD crawler truck. I wound it around the wheels then soldered the ends to keep it in place I like this better than stick on wheel weights.

This solid solder (60% lead, 40% tin) is a reasonable buy, but not available in-store. Customers should be careful about the items at bricks and mortar locations, since, in this category, the prices can be unreasonable: this one lb. roll, which I had to order online, was around $10; in my local Home Depot, a solder for plumbing (albeit with silver component) was the equivalent of $112 per pound.
