HARRIS "Weldcote" Low Fuming Brass Rod 1/16" diameter
One of the standards of the industry, Weldcote low fuming brass has a balanced chemical composition of Copper and Zinc as well as alloying elements of tin, iron, manganese, and silicon. The high silicon content of Weldcote Low Fuming Brass keeps fumes to a minimum.
less pricey than silver, this thinner 1/16" brass rod is ideal for brazing lugs, cantilever bosses, stem or seat pinches, dropouts or initial "penetration go-arounds" on main tubes that you plan to fillet braze with 3/32" version of this rod, or any capillary joints where higher prolonged heat of 1670-1750F is not an issue. remember to always clean the area you plan to braze with emery cloth and always use plenty of brass brazing flux to clean and prevent oxidization to the effected area.
Note: brass rod will not bond to stainless steel - for stainless steel use silver solder with the proper flux.
Tensile Strength: 65,000psi - regardless of gap or fit.
Brazing Temp range: 1670-1750F
