Aluminium is notoriously difficult to join because of its tenacious and very stable surface oxide. Fluxes to remove that oxide are very aggressive and can have a short life. Using the correct flux overcomes the problems allowing the use of most soft solders. Use Stayclean Aluminium Flux.
2207 is a lead free, low melting point soft solder with excellent flow characteristics and when used with Stayclean Aluminium flux will produce strong leak tight joints in a range of aluminium alloys. It also offers the benefit of a reasonable colour match. The combination will also join aluminium alloys to copper, brass, stainless & mild steel.
is a low temperature flux cored, lead bearing soft solder wire. It is available in 1 metre lengths at 0.9 and 1.5mm dia.
It will readily solder commercially pure aluminium and copper aluminium alloys. It is best heated with a soft propane flame.
is a 12% silicon aluminium rod suitable for general purposes. Use the same principles of brazing to get the best from this alloy although better results are often achieved if the joint is slightly "belled". Because its melting temperature (575 - 585 deg C) is close to that of pure aluminium (620 deg C) care should be taken when heating to avoid melting the surface of the aluminium. The use of propane is recommended. Bring the joint to temperature in 2 - 3 stages, allowing a short period of "soak time" to allow the joint to "soak up the heat". This will help to prevent the components collapsing during brazing. Use it with AlSi Flux.
is more akin to a welding rod and tends to produce fillet joints rather than capillary ones. In simple terms, use a wire brush to clean the joint area, warm it with a propane torch to about 350 deg C, melt the alloy onto the surface, abrade the aluminium through molten Technoweldt to effect the joint. It can also be used to repair cracks etc on aluminium castings or build up studs. To see how to use it, watch see video clips on www.techno-weld.biz A pack consists of 5 rods 2.5mm dia x 200
