Although braze alloys melt at higher temperatures than solders, they benefit from lowered process temperatures with the addition of indium. Here's why...
"These fibers are slightly wider than a human hair, as stretchable as a rubber band, and yet can sense touch using a capacitive mechanism that is similar to the way touch screens work on tablets and smart phones."
Interesting resources to learn more about recycling.
