Brazing is a metal-joining process where two or more metal parts or components are joined together by melting and by flowing a filler metal into the joint. The filler metal has a lower melting point than the adjoining metal. Brazing differs from welding in that it does not involve melting the work pieces. Brazing also differs from soldering because higher temperatures are required in brazing, while also requiring much more closely fitted parts than when soldering. The filler metal flows into the gap between closely fitting parts by capillary action. The filler metal is brought slightly above its melting temperature while protected by a suitable atmosphere, such as a flux. The filler metal then flows over and wets the base metal, and is then cooled to join the work pieces together. Brazing processes are similar to soldering, except for the use of higher temperatures. A major advantage of brazing is the ability to join the same or different metals with considerable strength.
We supply consumables, tools and components for brazing, including flux, filler materials / alloys such as aluminum-silicon, copper-silver, copper-zinc, copper-tin, gold-silver, silver, nickel alloy...etc. Our brazing alloys are available as rods, ribbon, paste / cream, powder, wire, ring and preforms. Other brazing supplies you can obtain from our stocks are brazing torches, safety tools and apparel, abrasives, torch shield, heat conducting compounds, heat shield and more.
