Product Description

Glass artists need a very specific mix of alloys in their solder to get a smooth and clean bead on their work. Lead-free solder is ideal for projects that will be handled frequently or worn, or in workshops and classrooms that need to stay lead free. DGS works and gives the finished appearance of 60/40, excellent flow characteristics, runs an exceptional bead and is environmentally safe and easy to use. The DGS melts solid to liquid 415 - 490° F. Sold in a 1 lb. spool.

Delphi Tip: Lead-Free Solder should be used when making projects where your skin comes in contact with it, such as jewelry, boxes and kaleidoscopes.

Soldered jewelry shown made by artist Shannon Jones. From Delphi's Online Artist Gallery.

  •   Love Lead Free
By on
Pros : Easy to work with, great for decorative solder, Great shine, takes copper patina better than leaded (if you do a good job cleaning), lead free, structurally excellent.
Cons : none
Other Thoughts : Use a product to neutralize the flux and clean well (I like method mint glass cleaner). Add a tiny snip of copper wire and use a paint brush. You can get an even copper patina that is so coppery you'd think that was what you soldered with. I apply rustolium clear coat and my works have been outside in Michigan for 12 months w/o oxidation. You can use painters blue tape over the glass or nail polish remover to take the clear coat off the glass if you want.

  •   If you don't use patina...
By on
Pros : Fairly good flow
Cons : Doesn't take patina easily. Once the solder does take the patina, it has a silvery to blue hue. I won't purchase this again.
