Cadmium was once used as a very effective melting point depressant for silver based alloys but due to the awareness of cadmium as a serious risk to health and an EU ban of cadmium containing filler metals under REACH legislation these are no longer available for general use.
However there are certain exemptions for aerospace, defence and/or safety applications.
Please contact the VBC Technical Team at firstname.lastname@example.org for a suitable alternative for your application or to discuss the exemptions.
