Silver Braze 50
Silver Braze 50 Tehcnical Data
Silver Braze 50 may be used on copper, brass, nickel-silver, bronze, steel and other non-ferrous alloys melting above 1450F (765C). Silver Braze 50 has a flow point low enough for most non-ferrous alloys, combined with ductility, high tensile strength and good corrosion resistance, which makes it suitable for various commercial applications. On heavily galvanized or tinned steel its low zinc content permits absorption of more zinc or tin without joint embrittlement. One of the common uses for Silver Braze 50 alloy has been in brazing of steam turbine blades.
Silver Braze 50 is an intermediate temperature silver brazing filler metal with a fairly long (175F/100C) melting range. This long melting range is helpful when wide gap joints are brazed and is useful in producing large joint fillets to reduce the notch effect on stressed assemblies. This alloy exhibits a high degree of ductility and malleability, which is an advantage when parts are cold worked after brazing.
Properties of Brazed Joints
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.

Silver Braze 50 is not considered as corrosion resistant as the higher silver content braze filler metals, but the following results were obtained from corrosion tests on the filler metal:
