Safety Information

When using lead, NEVER SAND LEAD, FILE ONLY! Wear proper respiratory protection. When melted, the temperature should be kept as low as possible.The respirator should have a HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) filter, also known as a N100 filter. Where airborne exposures may exceed OSHA/ ACGIH permissible air concentrations, the min. respiratory protection recommended is a negative pressure air purifying respirator w/cartridges that are NIOSH/MSHA approved against dust, fumes & mists having a TWA not less than 0/05 MG/CU M. Always follow all instructions and warnings and wear proper eye, ear, skin and respiratory protection. When using chemicals always consult MSDS and product data sheets for proper safety precautions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leading a 69 Camaro firewall First time lead wiping - this stuff is easy to apply but the secret is preparation preparation preparation. Along with everyone else - I just wish it were cheaper, then I would use it more often. Eastwood's shipping time could be a little quicker too just quietly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Easily met my expectations. Old -school method with new technology worked great on my project. I used a propane plumber's torch and had very little difficulty melting the solder; it flows like butter and spreads evenly with some practice. I found that preparation is important in order to obtain the best results. Clean bare metal, lots of soldering paste (flux), and plenty of heat are essential. Also, too much applied solder is not better because you'll have to spend more time removing the excess. As far as cost goes, if more of us used more of this solder, then, perhaps, the price would go down.

Questions & Answers

Are polyester fillers OK to use over this lead free solder? I've read filler over 70/30 lead is a no no. Even EverCoat told me only their All Metal is approved for over lead, but I don't know about lead free.

Asked by: PaulF
Best Practice is to apply an epoxy primer over the lead or lead free and then apply body filler on top of the epoxy primer. Then once everything is sanded smooth you can apply a poly primer or urethane primer, block again, and then base and clear.

Can this be used on a gas tank ?

Asked by: Jim Jim
Yes you can use the lead solder on a gas tank, and the tank has to be completely free of any gas vapors or residue Pin holes will fill ok and it can be used to fill holes up to 1/8&rdquo; BUT it will need a backer .

Is this lead free solder compatible with leaded solder? In other words, can it be applied over the leaded solder?

Lead free solder cannot be used with regular lead filler since they melt at two different temperatures.
