Aluminum Brazing - Aluminum Welding
Aluminum brazing is a popular method for repair all sorts of aluminum base metals. With many other products on the market aluminum brazing requires tighter process parameters than most other brazing processes because of the closeness of the melting point of the braze filler metal and the base metal. Not so, however, with our HTS-2000 second-generation brazing rod, which has a melting point 500-degrees less than aluminum.
When brazing aluminum, cleanliness is usually extremely important since oil, scale and heavy oxides from extrusion must be removed prior to brazing. In addition, it is usually impossible to remove such oxides because of aluminum's natural ability to oxidize upon exposure to air. The HTS-2000 aluminum brazing rods are much more lenient when it comes to contaminants. In fact, our brazing rods easily penetrate past impurities that lay below the metal's surface, which may be impossible to penetrate with competitors materials. In fact, unlike the first generation aluminum brazing rods, the HTS-2000 does not require steel or special cleaning brushes to prep the areas for brazing.
Commonly, filler metals for aluminum brazing are available in wire, paste, powder, clad sheet and foil and not all filler metals are readily available in all forms. Some of these forms listed many be very difficult if not impossible to find in small quantities domestically. With our industrial strength no-flux aluminum brazing rods, we solve this problem entirely. This is the only rod you will ever need for all of your aluminum brazing projects big and small.
When brazing aluminum with our products, the affected area actually becomes stronger than the surrounding areas. You will never see a crack or break in the same place twice. Besides our industrial-strength aluminum brazing rod, all you will need is a heat source (propane or mapp gas), a turbo tip, or oxy-acetylene, and a free moment. No welding machine or furnace is necessary.
Our aluminum brazing rods can be used to repair diesel engines, airplanes, trucks, tractors, motorcycles, aluminum boats, trailers, fuel tanks, ladders, awnings, gutters, aluminum rivets and brackets to name a few uses. In order to get a feel for other uses of our product line, please see our video.
Yes, HTS-2000 works on all non-ferrous alloys including "all" aluminum alloys (even the ones that cannot be welded),magnesium aluminum mixtures, zinc, die cast, pot metal, copper, bronze, and galvanized parts.
