3 Things You Need To Know About Solder For Radiators

The solder used in every industry differs based off of the materials used and the design of the products, this is the same with the radiator industry. No matter how well the radiator is then there is designed, it cannot be expected to operate safely or efficiently if you do not use the right materials. When trying to decide what metals to use, you have to look at the materials cost, longevity of lifespan, and if repairing what the original radiator is made of.

  2. Different designs lead to difference in cooling ability: It is important to know what those differences are knowing the characteristics of metals in relation to your designs concepts. Heat transfer ability can possibly be reduced by soldering, so make sure to work precisely when working with solder on your radiators.
  3. Some of the examples of materials used in this industry include: 15Sn/85Pb, 20Sn/80PB, 30Sn/70Pb, 35Sn/65Pb and 40Sn/60Pb as well as aluminum and copper.
