Silver Braze 56

AWS: BAg-7

Silver Braze 56 is a silver-based brazing alloy used for ferrous and non-ferrous alloys in joints requiring a low temperature, cadmium-free alloy, as in food handling equipment.

Available Forms

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


Silver Braze 56 is a low temperature, free-flowing brazing filler metal with a slight tendency to liquate (separation into low and high melting constituents) if heated slowly through its melting range.


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) Low Carbon Steel: 40,000 - 50,000 Copper: 25,000 - 30,000 Brass: 30,000 - 40,000
