This silver chip solder is a good match for fine or sterling silver; the extremely small size of the chips—30-gauge, approximately 0.5 x 1.0 x 0.25mm—is particularly well-suited to precision soldering tasks. This easy formulation, with a lower melting point, is best used for the last join in a soldering sequence, or for joining fine wires that may be at risk of melting with prolonged exposure to heat. Already cut from sheet into conveniently sized pieces, chip solder is ready to use, saving the time and effort of cutting it as you go.
Priced by the troy ounce (ozt.); minimum order is 1 ozt.
