    SF1 Brazing rod

    Company just ordered in some SF1 rod and I am not familiar with it. Has anyone used it and what are your thoughts?

    Looks like it's 0% phosphor bronze rod. I've used it years ago to practice with when learning the trade. Cheaper to use when learning how to braze.

    It is the same as any 0% silver phos/copper brazing alloy.

    It won't flow as smoothly, or fill gaps as nicely, as the alloys with silver in them, but it will work just fine on well prepped joints that fit together well.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    Fire someone over it, that will get their attention.
