Soldering

Soldering stainless steels

Soldering is often used for joining stainless steel in applications such as roofing and water tubing (plumbing). Soldering, like brazing, uses filler alloys with lower melting points than the parent metal (i.e. the stainless steel) being joined. Temperatures are typically below 450 C for soldering stainless steels. The joint strength is generally lower than either brazed or welded joints.
