Hard solder
Solder Sol"der, n. [Formerly soder; F. soudure, OF. soudeure, fr. OF. & F. souder to solder, L. solidare to fasten, to make solid. See {Solid}, and cf. {Sawder}.] A metal or metallic alloy used when melted for uniting adjacent metallic edges or surfaces; a metallic cement. Hence, anything which unites or cements. [1913 Webster]

{Hard solder}, a solder which fuses only at a red heat, as one composed of zinc and copper, or silver and copper, etc.

{Soft solder}, a solder fusible at comparatively low temperatures; as, plumbers' solder, consisting of two parts lead and one part tin, is a soft solder. [1913 Webster]
