Answer

Yes it should be just fine for a compressor but steel or stainless screw together fitting would be a lot better more reliable

Can this solder be used for electrical applications?

You want a small diameter rosin core (flux core) solder for electrical use. Must be a non corrosive flux. This solder needs a flux. Its also too big in diameter in my opinion.

Will this product work on stainless steel? I need a lower temperature silver solder for stainles...

This is a tin alloy (soft solder); yes, it can be made to stick to stainless, but it is not 'easy' silver solder, which is probably what you intend. Jewelry making supplies stores will have a range of 'easy' to 'hard' silver solders, if you only need a small quantity. For stainless or other nickel alloys and soft solder (i.e. moderate temperatures) an acid flux is required, the hard-solder 'salts' won't be active enough.

Is this solder a perfect one to choose to solder jewelry?

For a durable bond, 'easy' silver solder is very different from this (wich is tin-based soft solder). It is suitable for soft base metal joining, in some jewelry fabrications.

Is this pure .9999 silver?

Answers

Most plumbing solder is mainly tin. Silver is usually less than 5%. Beware of any answers given by communityanswer because they are often totally wrong, such as saying this solder is almost 100% silver. Based on the spot price of silver, one pound of it would be about $250 today. The melting point of pure silver is 1761 degrees F, while "silver" solders melt at about 450 degrees F. Good luck soldering pipes with pure silver.

I used the Oatey lead free solder to fix a leak on my hot water copper line. First time soldering and went great. I have plenty left over in case other leaks spring, or have any other soldering projects.
