This alloy is not permitted for use on potable water systems due to presence of lead. This alloy is more sluggish and better suited to filling large gaps than 40/60 Tin-Lead. It is equally useful on steel, copper and nickel alloys, but not recommended for applications with high levels of vibration or where the joint is subject to heavy stresses.40/60 Tin-Lead solder is available in solid or rosin/acid cores.
