Jewellers Solder – Bronze / Copper / Brass
This solder is intended for soldering metal pieces together for jewellery making – we sell brass, bronze, and copper solders.
It has a more colour accurate look than Silver solder when soldered. These solder pieces are sold in one foot lengths (although they are almost always 1-2CM over for fairness).
Brass Jewellers Solder
The melt temperature for our Brass solder is around 600c; the flow temperature is around 700c. Sold in one foot lengths of 0.8MM wire.
Bronze Jewellers Solder
Our Bronze solder starts to melt at around 700c and will flow at 800c approximately. These wires are 0.8MM thick approximately – one foot lengths.
Copper Jewellers Solder
This Copper solder has a melting point around 700c and will start to flow at around 800c approximately. The wire measures around 1MM thick in wire form and sold is in one foot lengths.
It can be done with propane, oxy, etc. It may be possible with a micro Butane torch but I have not tried personally. I would highly recommend experimenting with various things – if you are having trouble soldering, try using a solder pick.
These solder should not need flux, but we would recommend experimenting before trying on an actual piece as it does behave differently to silver solder.
These are hard solders to cut, and we recommend either a piercing saw or a good pair of tin snips/aviation shears. I use a pair of brake cable cutters for a bike – obviously, I cut this solder daily!
While we sell this solder by the foot, you may receive several pieces totalling the length you ordered. This is purely to save on packaging and postage costs for you.
