Group buy on Sn96.5 Ag3.5 solder...
 
Hey guys,

I'm thinking of buying some silver solder. The problems is that it's a custom order, and very expensive unless I buy quantity. So, if there's enough interest I may order a bunch, and sell the rest. I'd need to sell about 20 rolls.

The mrf would be Kester, the solder mix would be Sn96.5, Ag3.5. Flux core would be #44 Kester, 3.3%. Dia .020 inches.

Approximate cost would be $40 per roll, for a 1 pound roll.


Any interest?

Hi, I don't know if this will be of any use to you, but I can get hold of 1/4, 1/2 or 1 pound rols of 4% silver, 0.5% copper and 95.5% Tin for much less than the price you have been quoted there (something in the region of $5, $9 and $17 respectively), so if you look around you may be able to find a standard part would be a lot cheeper, unless you are interested in that specific composition.

I'm looking for the silver for temperature, and strength characteristics (Not sound quality). How good is the alloy for strength? Do you know what the melting point is?

The stuff I'm quoting is about $115 per pound, with a minimum of 5 pounds. Price drops to around $40 per pound at 25 lbs.

Hi, I'm not too sure about that at the momnet, but I will see if I can find out some more information for you, or get you a link to the manufacturers web site.

Thanks!

I've seen copper used in alloys, but not very often.

The stuff I'm quoting is a Eutectic blend... ..or close to it.

How about Multicore 96S 362 which is Sn 96,3 %, Ag 3,7 %?
