What is blowpipe solder?
Our industry leading blowpipe solder is available in a wide range of high-quality fusible alloys. These alloys are mainly based on tin and lead, as well as the addition of indium, gallium, cadmium and bismuth where required. Most blowpipe solder will be from 47°C to 183°C. the low melting point is essential so you can use these fusible alloys for a variety of uses.
What blowpipe solder is used for:
The main and most recognisable characteristic of blowpipe solder is its low melting point and ease of use. This has its benefits as it makes this alloy suitable for many applications such as:
- Tube bending
- Wiping and joining of lead pipes
- Radio therapy shielding
- Optical lens grinding
- Press tools
- Safety devices
- Stained glass work
The listed applications are best when using blowpipe solder. Blowpipe Solder will save energy and time as you don’t need as much heat to melt to the solder when you’re joining lead pipes or tube bending etc.
DKL Metals offer a vast range of low melt alloys and blowpipe solder. Being one of the first in our industry to gain accreditation under the BS5750 Part 2 for their Quality Management System (QMS).
