This is the standard industry Low temperature solder for the assembly of whitemetal castings. The solder melts at 70C but when fully fused with whitemetal it re melts at a higher temperature. As this solder does not have good penetration qualities, when soldering whitemetal to brass or nickel silver, you should tin the brass with a 138 or 145 C Solder before soldering the parts together. Whitemetal often contains a high proportion of Antimony, which reacts badly with Zinc, a constituent of brass. (Antimony is an essential ingredient of some low melting point solders. The drawback is that it makes joints brittle. Tinning helps to avoid this problem.

The solder that in combination with our Sapphire No Clean Flux, makes everyone an expert! Sapphire 179 solder is 0.6mm diameter solder which flows absolutely brilliantly. It is perfect for brass, copper, wiring, trackwork, soldering to nickel silver or steel and it even solders spring steel and to 300 and 400 series stainless steel when used with the right flux. It has a very narrow melt range which makes dry joints a thing of the past. It has a multiple flux core to assist wetting and flow. Because it contains some silver it ts is a little more expensive than standard solders but we make no apology for that, as this specially formulated solder is simply the very best available anywhere! Sapphire 179 used by many electronics experts and some of the worlds best professional loco builders simply because it works better!

Vacuum action solder sucker for easily removing unwanted solder.
Sapphire 100 is an exciting solder which is designed for use on white-metal and similar alloys. We worked hard to make sure that its composition coexists better with brass than conventional 70 degree low melt solders, so while tinning is still recommended for larger joints this solder will work without pre-tinning so it is not always essential for smaller parts.
Its low temperature gives the ability to solder quickly and well without heating up the white-metal too much. It reacts differently and it can be re-worked… Because unlike 70 degree solder it will not combine with the white-metal and produce a weak ‘sludge’, so joints end up stronger.
Clean the white metal properly and use a good flux and you will also find it has much better flow and needs less per joint than conventional WM solder! We hope you like the way we present it – we often find that with bar solders even we cannot tell which one is which, so we cast it into a shape that makes it impossible to forget.

Soldering is often the most effective way of connecting two metals to give good physical bonding and electrical contact. Solder bonds well to many metals, and particularly well to copper.
The amount of heat generated by a soldering iron is usually expressed in watts, with most irons used in modelling and electronics being in the range of 12 to 25 watts. It must be remembered that a 25 Watt iron will not run hotter than a 12 Watt iron, but it will have more power available to quickly replace heat drained from the iron during soldering. The larger the components being soldered, the more heat necessary and the higher the power (watts) required. As too much heat can damage the components being joined it is important, within reason, to match the size of the job with the size of the iron.
Soldering irons will last longer with proper care:a) Before and during use wipe the bit on a damp sponge. Many bench stands incorporate a sponge for this purpose.b) If the bit is new, apply multicore solder to it as it heats up, to coat (tin) the bit.c) Always keep a hot iron in a bench stand, or suspended by the hook, when not in use.d) Never file the bit clean, this will damage the plating and reduce the life of the bit.
We sell a range of bits/tips to suit different makes of irons and come in various sizes to suit a wide range of applications, from the more finer bits to solder electrical components to the larger bits where you require more heat transfer for those bigger jobs.Please note that we cannot ship liquid solvents or soldering flux to addresses outside of Great Britain.
