Sil-Fos® is the original copper Phos brazing alloy
MILWAUKEE, WI (June 15, 2006)
Lucas-Milhaupt, Inc., a Handy & Harman Company, is celebrating the 75th anniversary of Sil-Fos®. Developed and patented by Handy & Harman in 1931. Sil-Fos® is the original copper/phosphorous brazing alloy used by thousands of manufacturers and contractors worldwide.
Sil-Fos® brazing alloys facilitate the joining of copper to copper without a flux and copper-based alloys (brass and bronze) with a flux. Developed and patented by Handy & Harman 75 years ago, Sil-Fos is the workhorse filler metal used in the refrigeration and air conditioning industry.
Handy & Harman began its business life in 1867 as a trader of precious metals, but soon became a precious metal fabricator, processor and refiner. As early as 1905, it began supplying its customers with small quantities of customized "silver solders" used to join or repair silver articles. These solders gradually found application beyond the arts industry and were increasingly used by general industry for joining all types of metals with strong, leak-tight bonds. These materials were eventually patented and became known as Easy-Flo®, Sil-Fos® and Handy Flux® and have been synonymous with brazing excellence.
For thousands of companies around the world, Lucas-Milhaupt supplies the brazing and soldering consumables that produce billions of successful joints every year. We offer a complete selection of metal-joining products, comprehensive fabrication services and knowledgeable technical support.
