Brazing Rods

Brazing Rods

Brazing wire rods (brazing alloys) for bronze and silver brazing of metals.

  • Manganese-Bronze brazing alloy rod for general purpose Oxy braze welding of steel, cast iron, malleable iron, copper, copper alloys. Is similiar to & can be used in place of Tobin Bronze for many applications. Melting range approx. 870-900c. AWS Classification A5.8 RBCuZn-C. (Not suitable for copper pipes carrying hot water or salt water).
  • Nickel Bronze (Nickel Silver) brazing alloy rod for high strength Oxy braze welding of steel, cast iron, malleable iron, fusion welding of similar copper alloys & build up of worn ferrous components, eg gear teeth. Good wear resistance. Melting range approx. 920-940c. AWS classsification A5.8 RBCuZn-D.
  • Economical 2% Silver "phos copper" brazing alloy rod for joining copper to copper (with or without flux) & copper to low zinc brass (flux required). Popular for copper pipe, plumbing fittings, hot water tanks. Melting Range (approx): 645-820°C. AWS Specification A5.8-B CuP6.
  • 15% Silver "phos copper" brazing alloy rod for joining copper to copper (with or without flux) & copper to brass (flux required). Commonly used in plumbing & HVAC applications; copper pipe, hot water tanks, plumbing fittings, etc. Excellent for gap-filling where close fit-up does not exist, and where thermal expansion and service vibration are involved. When heated above liquidus temperature will flow into tight connections. Highest joint ductility and strength in HVAC-R applications. Melting Range (approx): 645-800°C. AWS Specification A5.8-B CuP5.
  • Popular 45% silver brazing alloy rod for general purpose, high-strength brazing of all ferrous and non ferrous metals, including steel, stainless-steel, copper, brass, nickel, etc. High fluidity & rapid capillary flow, good choice where parts have close fit up. Melting Range (approx): 640-680°C.
