Years ago a friend of my from England brought me a brazing rod that i was able to use with a cigerate lighter to join to pieces of refrigerant copper pipes.This friend on mine is no more in Nigeria, I have been trying to reach but all in vein. Please if someone knows this type of brazing rod let me have the detail of it so that I can place an order.


Best regarsd,

are you sure it was rod and not a high silver content solder to be used with an acid flux.It's strong but goes pourous after many years have passed.
