These pics come from a new aerospace test facility that they are constructing at the University of Notre Dame. The SSF-6 is working great.
I am attempting to make all of these fittings air tight as they are used for pressure measurements. We can¹t have any leaks. I had very little warpage of my base metal and I think this is really going to work out very well.

While copper, brass, and bronze may not be applications that are used every day in welding, industries such as refrigeration, electronics and plumbing—as well as ornamental artists, encounter these metals and perform brass, bronze, or copper welding jobs daily.
Here are some things to remember when working on brass, bronze, or copper:
Brass melts at around 1652-1724º F range and is fairly easy to cast. During any brass welding job, use high quality filler if the color doesn’t have to match the metal. Because of its relatively high melting point, low zinc brass can be braze-welded.
Super Alloy 1, SSF-6, and SSQ-6
Our Super Alloy 1 can bond all of these metals in any combination, and can be used in bonding with other metals such as aluminum—at 350º F.
Our SSF-6 Silver Solder is 56% silver and is especially useful when high strength is needed, or when you need high flow to get to those hard to reach areas.
Our SSQ-6 Silver Solder Paste is the same formula as our SSF-6, in a convenient 1 oz syringe.
|Super Alloy 1||SSF-6||SSQ-6|
|350° F||1150° F||1050° F|
|20,000 PSI||over 70,000 PSI||over 85,000 PSI|
|3/32", 1/8"||1/16"||1 oz Syringe|
Honey liquid, 2 year shelf life
|Flux coated||Flux Mixed In, 9 month shelf life|
Works in all positions
|No||Yes, if you overheat||No|
Bonds thick to thin metals
Can join copper/brass/bronze to other metals

A first time welder uses Super Alloy 1 and an oxyacetylene torch to join brass to aluminum at 350 degrees
We are solver brazing cupre nickel together using SSQ-6 silver solder from muggyweld.com. A propane torch was used on the two pieces of copper nickel, one tube was flared so the other could be inserted for tight fit.
Muggy Weld SSQ-6 is simple to use on brass, you just squeeze out the amount needed on the brass before you heat the part with your choice of torch.
We are using SSQ-6 to join two copper plates. Just push the plunger on the syringe and add the amount need for the solder joint.
We are silver soldering a 1/8 inch steel plate to a copper end cap using Muggy Weld SSQ-6 56% silver solder paste.
We are soldering copper tubing to copper plate with Super Alloy 1 rod and flux. We add the flux first to the cleaned copper then heat until the flux bubbles and turns brown, this tells us the copper is ready for the solder rod.
We use Super Alloy 1 and a propane torch to repair a hole in a brass tube at a very low temp.

Yes, Super Alloy 1 can solder brass to aluminum. In this clip we join these 2 metals and demonstrate the strength of the repair.
Often in the refrigeration industry, it is necessary to join copper to aluminum tubing from an evaporator.
This clip shows how to join 2 pieces of brass using our SSF-6 silver solder.
