Selecting Silver Solder

When assembling, start with your highest melting point solder. As you assemble each piece, use a lower temperature solder. The chart below describes the uses for and flow temperatures of four standard types of solder.

Solder Flow Points Use for
Extra-hard 1490°F/810°C Laser welding, repair operations
Hard 1450°F/788°C First soldering operations
Medium 1360°F/738°C General soldering;
intermediate operations
Easy 1325°F/719°C General soldering and repairs;
intermediate or final operations
Extra-easy 1207°F/653°C Final soldering
