    It is a low fuming, bronze alloy copper,zinc and a little phosphorus. Of course your mileage may vary, due to the alloy and what company has made it and rebranded it.

    The other common yellow type torch rods are naval bronzes, silicon bronzes. They than get more into custom blends
    Crown alloy's general purpose brazing alloy for torch is Crown 125 bare, if FC after it is flux coated. Tensile strength is up to 65,000 psi working temp is 1670°F to1750°F Flux is used.
    Been there, probably broke it, doing that!

        Here, unless you go for something specific, either manganese bronze or tobin bronze.
