Default Solder without flame.....

I found this while researching my steam engine. Claims that it will withstand up to 250 psi and seems family strong, or is it just a hoax? If not, this could make it a lot easier than using regular solder and blow torches.

I'm guessing he's referring to "Just for Copper"
or something similar.

NO NO!

That appears to be cyano based adhesive like a loctite product.

Silver solder for a boiler is the ONLY thing you can safely put a boiler together with.

Those adhesives break down with increased temperature ...and a simple 10 psi boiler will run alot hotter than your tap water.

DO NOT USE THAT FOR A BOILER!......ok?
