How to use Lead Free Tin Antimony Plumbing Solder Wire Sn95Sb5 95 5?

Cut and Clean the Pipes: Use a pipe cutter to cut the copper pipes as per the design of plumbing system. After cutting, use emery cloth or sandpaper to clean the cut ends to make sure they are free from burrs, oxidation, and debris.

Apply Flux: Apply plumbing flux to both the cleaned pipe ends and the inside of the fittings. Flux helps remove oxidation and allows the solder to flow and bond properly.


Assemble the Joint: Insert the cleaned pipe ends into the fittings while the flux is still wet.


Heat the Joint: Use a propane torch heat the joint evenly. Direct the heat to the joint, not the solder wire. Heat until the flux begins to bubble and the copper pipes and fittings turn a reddish color.


Apply Plumbing Solder Wire: When the joint is hot enough, touch the Sn95Sb5 solder wire to the joint's seam. The solder should melt and flow into the joint, filling the gap completely. Continue applying solder until you see it emerge around the entire circumference of the joint.


Remove Heat: As soon as the joint is properly soldered, remove the heat source. Allow the joint to cool naturally. Do not disturb or move the joint while it cools to ensure a strong bond.


Clean the Joint: After the joint has cooled, wipe away any excess flux using a damp cloth. It's essential to remove any remaining flux to prevent corrosion over time.
