Lead Free Solder
We are one of the leading suppliers
in the U.K. for lead free solders suitable for use with pewter
in applications involving food and drink. The main problems occur when trying
to solder thin pewter sheet where something like pure tin does not melt much below
the melting point of the pewter so we developed our range of tin - bismuth solders.
Carn PP3 - For Pewter Sheet (please
note we don't supply sheet)
This is our most popular grade and is
widely used in the manufacture of pewter hip flasks, we supply this material in
sticks of around 50cms length in quantities from 1 kg. This solder is fully molten
at around the same point as a tin lead solder although it begins to melt below
this. It has a reasonable colour match and complies with the European standard
for this material.
This is a lower melting variety which
some prefer for more difficult jobs supplied in same form as PP3 and again meets
the European standard. Fully molten at around 138C
Available in bars or sticks suitable
for tinning copper cook ware.
Pure tin now available to make your own alloys
We are always developing new compositions
and can make other compositions to meet customers specific requirements combinations
of any of Tin Copper Antimony Bismuth Silver.
