Cole Sonafrank's - Faces in Stained Glass

Faces in Stained Glass

Read Cole's remarks on Johnson's IA-423 Lead-Free Solder when used with copper foil technique.

Note:   We have chosen to display the above artwork by Cole Sonafrank in appreciation for his kind remarks about Johnson's IA-423 Lead Free Solder. We would also like to acknowledge his fine Web Site with links to hundreds of stained glass studios, artisans and suppliers. Nowhere on the web have we found a better collection of art and information for the stained glass industry.


We think of Sheet Metal Soldering as the soldering of light gauge metals, which covers literally hundreds of different soldering applications used in industry today. Johnson produces the largest selection of industrial soldering fluxes anywhere.

We have had the pleasure of working with Revere Copper to determine which soldering flux and lead-free solder were best suited for running long seams on roofing panels. This job requires a solder and flux combination that pulls solder all the way through the joint, yet leaves little or no corrosive residues behind to be of concern later. A consensus was reached after tests showed Johnson's #497 Lead-free Solder, used with Johnson's E-127 Flux-'N-Solder with Pure Tin, enabled mechanics skilled in the art of soldering to perform this task quite successfully. Additional products and panels were then sent to several professional shops for soldering, and we were even more amazed at the results that came back. We are all convinced that conversion to lead-free is possible just as soon as it becomes more prudent to do so.

These are among our most notable products for soldering sheet metal are: Johnson's Soldering Fluid,   Johnson's No. 1 and Lloyd's Stainless Steel Fluxes, J-33 Flux for Galvanized,   B-118 and B-120 Organic Production Fluxes,and Sal-Bars for architectural copper applications. Johnson also produces aluminum fluxes. Refer to our Fluxes page or contact us for help with your flux selection process.


We introduced Johnson's Soldering Paste many years ago. It soon became a favorite of plumbers across the country because it offers just the right fluxing power for soldering sweat fittings, but doesn't corrode the copper pipes. Johnson also produces paste fluxes with pure tin, E-127 and E-128 Flux-'N-Solders with Pure Tin, that are compatible with Johnson's Lead-Free Solders, which both flux and pre-tin each joint to provide the tightest and strongest possible bond.
