Burl,
I have bought it from Rio Grande riogrande.com    It lasts a very long time.  melting point about 400 degrees. Very high tense strength.  Quite expensive now. Bill Hudson
They also have other types of solder paste in syringes for higher temp.

     The iron plating on soldering tips is to control the erosion which occurs when using plain copper tips.  Copper readily dissolves into molten solder and will pit making it difficult to keep the tip clean.  The iron plating retards this and makes the tips last much longer. 
     For solder to work, everything must be clean.  For electronic solder, a simple moist pad will work.  And there needs to be a microscopic gap between the parts for the solder to wick into the joint.
     To all a Happy New Year.
