Ideal for aluminium repairs and restoration work, general maintenance or fabrication jobs for the professional workshop, DIY enthusiast or Hobbyist.
HTS-2000 is a "Second Generation" fluxless low-heat brazing rod for nonferrous metals. HTS-2000 will successfully join all aluminium alloys, including those that are not favorably joined by high-temperature brazing.
Through recent advancements in metallurgy, HTS-2000 is found to be the easiest, fastest, and strongest brazing rod ever to be developed! Made for all non-ferrous metals and aluminium parts, HTS-2000 is a second generation Industrial Strength Brazing Rod created from a revolutionary new formula.
Not to be confused with Alumaloy, Alumaweld, Alumarod, Durafix, Aladdin 3 in 1, or any other first generation rods which generally consist of just 3 alloys. HTS-2000 is a unique stand-alone product, Comprised of nine alloys that cost more to produce and through exhaustive testing led to this superior advanced technology. HTS-2000 has an elongation of 10% in 2 inches (rather than the standard 3% like the first generation rods listed above) which makes HTS-2000 3 times more flexible and stronger than any of its competitors. It also easily penetrates past impurities that lay below the metal's surface which may be impossible to penetrate with competitors materials. Also unlike the first generation rods HTS-2000 does not require steel or special cleaning brushes. All of this means not only a more expensive manufacturing process with new technology but also superior quality.
When drawn over heated aluminium, HTS-2000 penetrates the aluminium oxide, creating a molecular bond that is stronger than the original commercial aluminium. Electrochemical corrosion is never a problem, because the electrode potential between HTS-2000 and aluminium is so slight. HTS-2000 joints last permanently in normal or protected environments. They will endure 10 years or longer under severe conditions. HTS-2000 joints are evaluated as permanent, corrosion resistant, and stronger than joints made by heli-arc machines and all other brazing rods tested.
