    Default Argentium and argotect - advice please

    I have an engraved piece of argentium sheet that has to be soldered to two other argentium sheets. (The engraving has to be done first.) Would I be wise to augment argentium's antifirescale properties with argotect or boric acid/ meths?

    Thanks

    There as no need, as Argentium does not exhibit firescale. Also it is best pickled in clean new pickle. However the dedicated solder, darkens more quickly , so it is wise to hide it as best you can

    Also note that when hot the material is very fragile, so do not use tight clamps or soldering probes, or attempt to move or quench it while there is any visible red.
