The Low melting point of Blowpipe Solder
Blowpipe solder is a fusible alloy which has a primary purpose of melting at a low temperature compared to other metals. Steel is a common metal that is used for many things like construction and car manufacturing, steel has a common melting point of 1370 degrees C. Blowpipe solder has a much lower melting point, for example lead free Blowpipe Solder is fully molten at around 227°C. The Melting temperature of blowpipe solder is perfect for many applications, one of those being the joining of lead pipes. Blowpipe solder is useful for many companies needing fusible alloys as they will save your company time and energy as they require very little time to melt and not a great amount of energy to melt them either.
