When you speak, vaguely, using buzz words. You use up air time, or in this
case bandwidth. But you really don't say anything useful. Try being
specific, and maybe you will use your time effectively.
To answer your question: All of your vague writing is not understood.
Stay Brite is wonderful for brand new copper, from the parts house. Flows at
a lot lower temperature than stick braze. The Stay Brite goes from solid to
liquid almost instantly, and runs out of voids. When fittings are very
closely fitted, then it works well, by capillary action.
Stick braze will work much better than old copper. Stick braze requires a
heck of a lot hotter temps, but the fill seems a bit better than Stay Brite.

ALWAYS clean your parts as well as possible. Contamination can
prevent proper adhesion (wetting, bonding, et al). Flux (phosphorous
in phos-copper filler) can "absorb" contamination but there is a
limit. Too much contamination will "consume" the flux and you will
get a poor joint. How much contamination is "too much"? Usually,
the amount that remains when you decide to take a shortcut and don't
clean really well.
