This specification covers a silver alloy in the form of wire,
rod, sheet, strip, foil, pig, powder, shot, and chips and a viscous
mixture (paste) of powder in a suitable binder.
This material has been used typically for joining ferrous
metals, including austenitic steels and alloys, where high joint
strength up to 400 °F (204 °C) is required, and for joining
nonferrous metals except those having a base of titanium, aluminum
or magnesium, but usage is not limited to such applications.
The nickel content helps to minimize crevice corrosion in
corrosion resistant steels.
Numerous scientific studies have determined that cadmium
presents a health hazard to persons who are exposed to it.
