Featuring Holtite Alloys and Miter-Al-Braze Alloys for Aluminum Metal Joining

Brazing is a metal joining process whereby a filler metal is heated above the melting point and distributed between two or more close fitting parts by capillary action. The filler metal is brought slightly above its melting ( liquidus ) temperature while protected by a suitable atmosphere, usually a flux. It then flows over the base metal ( know as wetting ) and is then cooled to join the workpieces together. It is similar to soldering, except the temperatures used to melt the filler metal are higher for brazing.

A variety of alloys are used as filler metals for brazing depending on the intended use or application method. In general, braze alloys are made up of 3 or more metals to form an alloy with the desired properties. The filler metal for a particular application is chosen based on its ability to: wet the base metals, withstand the service conditions required, and melt at a lower temperature than the base metals or at a very specific temperature.

Applications: Joining material within the Aluminum family of alloys.

Forms: Cast Strips or Powder, special shapes available upon request.

Applications Using Low Melting Alloys

Low melting alloys are considered fusible alloys because they melt at temperatures below 300 degrees are often combined with other metals in order to increase certain properties. For example, Bismuth is often combined with tin and/or silver to create lead-free solders that are non-toxic. Low Melting Alloy Applications and Uses Low melting alloys can be…

Powdered metals help engineers produce parts cost-effectively What is the best way to make a 3-D part out of metal? It depends. There are a number of considerations involved, including time and money. To create parts, manufacturers can choose either a subtractive or an additive manufacturing process. Subtractive manufacturing involves taking a block of material…
