Silver Braze 45T

AWS: BAg-36

Silver Braze 45T is a general purpose, low temperature filler metal used in cadmium-free brazing applications. It offers an excellent compromise between low melting point and moderate silver content. For improved corrosion resistance in stainless steel joints, use an alloy that contains a small amount of nickel.

Available Forms

Wire, strip, engineered preforms, specialty preforms per customer specification, powder and paste.


Silver Braze 45T is a free-flowing, low temperature filler metal commonly used as a replacement of cadmium-bearing filler metals of similar silver content. This alloy is best suited for narrow gap applications (0.001in. – 0.005in radial joint clearance). Flux should be used with this alloy.


The properties of a brazed joint are dependent upon numerous factors including base metal properties, joint design, metallurgical interaction between the base metal and the filler metal. The results listed below were generated from brazed butt joints which were tested under standard room temperature conditions. Tensile Strength (lbs/in2) Copper: 28,000-33,000 Brass: 35,000-45,000 Low Carbon Steel: 55,000-65,000 304 Stainless Steel: 80,000-85,000 Elongation (%, 2” gage length) Copper: 25-35 Brass: 15-30 Low Carbon Steel: 8-13 304 Stainless Steel: 2-5
