Harris Silver Rod (Copper Brazing Alloy)
Harris 0 phos-copper brazing alloy is a filler material used in the brazing process, a joining technique that forms a strong and permanent bond between two or more metal components. It involves melting the filler material (a.k.a. brazing rod) with the base material of higher melting temperature, to form a secure joint without melting the main metal structure.
Being a copper alloy, the brazing rod's primary application is to join together copper and its alloys. They are used in multiple industrial applications.
Can be used for brazing of brass
Applicable for use in most manual brazing applications
Cannot be used for brazing of ferrous base metals, such as steel and iron
Do not use/ Stop all brazing works when exposed to sulfur or sulfur-containing components
A joint clearance of 0.02" to 0.07" is needed before proceeding with brazing
HVAC systems: joining together copper pipes and coil tubings securely is very critical to ensure cooling efficiency
Plumbing: creation of strong, leak-free connections between copper pipes and fittings is important, so as to withstand high pressures and temperature changes
Electrical: formation of strong joints to ensure the wiring and conductors are capable of handling and carrying of high electric current levels
