The Turbo Torch® Viper line includes five brazing rod alloys, five solders, four high silver alloys, three fluxes, and an aluminum repair kit. The brazing alloys are ideal for joining copper to copper and are self-fluxing in this application, says the company. The soldering flux paste is a water soluble, nontoxic flux for use on copper, brass, tin, silver, galvanized iron, lead, mild steel, zinc, and malleable iron. The silver bearing solder is available in two compositions – Viper Sl, recommended for fast melting, free flowing jobs, and Viper SS, recommended when a wider melting point is desired. Also available are the Viper 95/5 lead-free solder and the Viper 50/50 solder. For use with furnace, resistance, or induction heating applications, the silver brazing flux paste is high-heat resistant and has powerful cleaning action. The aluminum flux paste solders aluminum at lower temperatures and works well with all Viper solders, says the company. The aluminum repair kit, designed for repairing aluminum evaporators and ducts, includes aluminum flux paste and solder. The high silver brazing alloys are available in wire coil form and various amounts ranging up to 5 Troy ounces. The SX solder creates corrosion-resistant leak-tight joints.
