    Here is right from the harris website, says use it on any bamn thing.

    “Both Stay Brite and Stay Brite 8 produce an overall component with greater strength than a brazed component whose base metals are weakened by annealment from high brazing heat. Stay Brite solders bond with all of the ferrous and nonferrous alloys. Joints soldered with Stay Brite solders exhibit considerably higher than necessary elongation for sound, dissimilar metal joints and vibration applications.”

    Harris does seem to contradict themselves on the subject. When you go to solders and choose alum to alum or alum to copper or brass the only option that comes up is al-solder 500.

    Next time i attempt a alum joint ill give that a try. With the alum flux.

    al-solder 500 Thats it!

    Practice with Beer cans First, aluminum soldering is a PITA. Epoxy works better!

    Well i talked to the harris consumable product tech support and guy whole heartedly agreed that stay brite 8 is not for alum, said stay brite with alum flux would be a better option.

    Also said the alcore solder is popular for pinholes or micro channel repairs. Probably the exact thing im getting from nordyne.

    At worst case you could take that pass out.
    The primary function of the design engineer is to make things difficult for the fabricator and impossible for the serviceman.
