Soldering and brazing are similar processes that cover or layer a joint with solder, a silver/lead alloy. Soldering uses an electrically heated metal tip, while brazing uses an open flame.
A special type of solder, Common Wire Solder, is often used to coat areas against rusting and corrosion when the object is too large to disassemble and dip in galvanizing tanks.
