Nickel-Silver Solder

This is one troy ounce of our silver solder with nickel.  Nickel is important in that it allows for a strong chemical bond, as well as a mechanical bond, between the solder and the metals being soldered.  Also, it is the most Tarnish Resistant orthodontic solder on the market -- your solder joints will not turn black, like other solders.

22 feet -- Because it contains 6% less silver than most orthodontic silver solders without nickel, you get more solder for your dollar.  

Here’s a review of our solder from a lab owner who had a serious tarnish problem:

Have you ever had one of those uh oh moments as a lab owner? If you said no, I will pray for you because you surely must be lying! We have all had something that just stumped us. For me it was a problem, not with solder joints simply tarnishing, but turning a hideous black. Only one account had this problem, and he was not in our state. His patients were upset because the appliances were indeed horrible looking. I checked with everyone else, no problems. We didn't do anything different with this account. Even so I made sure that we weren't overheating the solder, being sure to sandblast bands and even the joints after finishing the appliance, steam cleaning every joint to shiny perfection...…..and yet still the joints, after a short time, would become that hideous black color. I lost work because of the problem, but had no solution, until Jay Tyler had a video on solder joints tarnishing. In speaking with the account I found that they had a high sulfur content in their water supply. I tried the solder mixture that Jay had put together and found it to be the solution! Viola no more black solder joints!! Happy to be back in business with this account and very much appreciate Jay's help in solving our problems! Even after 35 years, something can come along that will stump you, I guess! Just thankful for those out there with a willingness to help find a solution! Thanks Jay!
