The answer is... maybe. The problem isn't mechanical strength or pressure, but temperature. On a suction line, should be no problem. But if your high-side temperatures get too close to the melting temperature of the solder... look out. What refrigerant(s) will you be using?
No it is an acid type flux
I would not use this for stained glass work. The solder that comes with this is a very thin coil, while professional stained glass solder is 1/4" to 3/4" in thickness. I think you would have a hard time making a good bead with such a thin coil. I used this product to repair a joint on a leaded panel, and I think this would work great on repairs if one is in a pinch. I did stained glass for about four years, and made some projects for my house such as a fireplace screen and small window panel, and a big panel for my bathroom, doing both copper foil and lead. With copper foil method, you need to make that nice even bead, and I just don't see how to do that with solder so thin.
It will join them but for any decent strength you will need a weld.
This product works very well for soldering small brass items. It is very easy to manipulate. I don’t know how well it works with steel.
I thin so but it has been a while since I have been to the Stay Brite web site.
4% silver and as I recall mostly tin with no lead. It is way stronger than conventional lead/tin solder but is definitely not strong enough for repairing band saw blades.
