Solders and fluxes – suppliers

There are several suppliers who will supply silver solders and fluxes in small amounts as used by model engineers.

It seems probable that all silver solders and their fluxes are ultimately made by Johnson Matthey. Silver solders made by Johnson Matthey containing cadmium are no longer available to the general public.

 primarily suppliers to model engineers
