Holly Ginsberg Gage asked via Facebook:
Is this joint stronger than metal clay and pastemaker or lavendar?
paste made of the metal using PasteMaker will indeed bond like metal
clays together and facilitate repairs. However, there are advantages of
Clay-Bond Plus that a paste as above cannot do.
This from the producer, Ron Diegel:
"CB+ offers quick firing (15 min) at a relatively low temperature (350C),
which makes for convenience in forming joins quickly. It does not
require the higher firing temperature of various metal clays."
"It is easy to avoid fire scale formation when using it on sterling silver because of the lower soldering temperature of 350C."
ClayBond can join two different metals together such as sterling to
bronze, copper to fine silver - any combination really. Also, Clay-Bond
Plus acts like a glue, keeping two pieces together after it dries
making handling the piece less delicate for the firing process.
