I don’t have the original poster’s name so excuse me if I
There is a French-made solder in rod-form which has a fairly low
melting point and I saw it being used for the repair of the
frames for eye- glasses and contains flux. It’s available in
silver and gold colours. I’m not sure exactly where to purchase
it (mine was given to me) but the name is “Pallarium”
The details on the label are as follows:
"PALLARIUM is a new solder with a melting point of 580 degC,
formed of a hollow rod, of 1mm diameter, and inside which is a
special component acting as flux.
PALLARIUM ensures the soldering of all kinds of metals in the
dental practice, nickel-chrome, stainless steel, chrome cobolt,
gold, silver, etc.
PALLARIUM is available in a standard quality of white shade and
similar to white or yellow gold of 20 carats.
PALLARIUM is always ready for use and for immeadiate casting,
does not produce any bulbs on the wire, does not carbonize."
The manufacturer is:
917 rue Marcel Paul
ZA des Grands Godets
F 94500 Champigny-sur-Marne
Tel (1) 220.127.116.11

I have no connection with the company although I have used both
the gold and silver colours and they seem about as strong as
ordinary precious metal solders.
I hope this helps.
