Silver Braze 56

Silver Braze 56 Technical Data


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. 

Brazing Characteristics

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. This brazing alloy is excellent for general purpose brazing of close-tolerance joints. The low zinc content minimizes issues with prolonged or repeated heating.

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. 

  Tensile Strength (lbs/in2)
Low Carbon Steel 40,000-50,000
Copper 25,000-30,000 
Brass 30,000-40,000


Silver Braze 56 conforms to American Welding Society (AWS) A5.8/A5.8M BAg-7, Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) AMS 4763

Available Forms

Silver Braze 56 is available in wire, strip, engineered preforms, specialty preforms per customer specification, powder and paste.
