    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" [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rtcWaDgngq0]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rtcWaDgngq0[/ame] 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? ;D
