Aluminium Brazing

Aluminium brazing is a popular method for repair all sorts of aluminium base metals. With many other products on the market aluminium brazing requires tighter process parameters than most other brazing processes because of the closeness of the melting point of the braze filler metal and the base metal. Not so, however, with our HTS-2000 second-generation brazing rod, which has a melting point 260oC less than aluminium.

When brazing aluminium, cleanliness is usually extremely important since oil, scale and heavy oxides from extrusion must be removed prior to brazing. In addition, it is usually impossible to remove such oxides because of aluminium's natural ability to oxidize upon exposure to air. The HTS-2000 aluminium brazing rods are much more lenient when it comes to contaminants. In fact, our brazing rods easily penetrate past impurities that lay below the metal's surface, which may be impossible to penetrate with competitors materials. In fact, unlike the first generation aluminium brazing rods, the HTS-2000 does not require steel or special cleaning brushes to prep the areas for brazing.

Commonly, filler metals for aluminium brazing are available in wire, paste, powder, clad sheet and foil and not all filler metals are readily available in all forms. Some of these forms listed many be very difficult if not impossible to find in small quantities domestically. With our industrial strength no-flux aluminium brazing rods, we solve this problem entirely. This is the only rod you will ever need for all of your aluminium brazing projects big and small.

When brazing aluminium with our products, the affected area actually becomes stronger than the surrounding areas. You will never see a crack or break in the same place twice. Besides our industrial-strength aluminium brazing rod, all you will need is a heat source (propane or mapp gas), a turbo tip, or oxy-acetylene, and a free moment. No welding machine or furnace is necessary.

Our aluminium brazing rods can be used to repair diesel engines, airplanes, trucks, tractors, motorcycles, aluminium boats, trailers, fuel tanks, ladders, awnings, gutters, aluminium rivets and brackets to name a few uses. In order to get a feel for other uses of HTS 2000 Aluminium Rods, please see our demonstration videos

 

Instructions - HTS2000

ALWAYS PRACTICE FIRST ON WASTE MATERIAL

 

WHEN USING LOWER HEAT GAS TORCHES, ALWAYS HOLD THE FLAME OF THE TORCH AT 90 DEGREES TO THE METAL TO BE HEATED WITH THE TIP OF THE BLUE FLAME 3-4 CMS FROM THE METAL SURFACE.  THIS WILL GIVE YOU MAXIMUM HEAT EFFICIENCY.

 

Step 1:
Clean the area to be worked with a file, grinder, or wire brush. Ideally a clean stainless steel wire brush but most brushes will work.

 

Step 2:
Heat the work surface (not the brazing rod) until the work surface is hot enough to melt the rod, just as you would if using a solder. DO NOT PUT THE ROD IN THE FLAME. You must bring the temperature of the base metal up to the melting point of the HTS�2000 Flux Less Brazing Rod. Open the pores of the work surface with heat for the rod to penetrate the surface.

 

Step 3:
For threads and thin aluminium, tin the housing with the rod itself by scratching on the housing when the appropriate temperature is reached. For all other uses, use a tinning brush to tin the area with HTS�2000, when the appropriate temperature is reached. Then do your build up for excellent results. Finish the joint by stroking a small stainless steel screw driver blade along the molten rod.

 

Step 4:
When the repair is completed, always allow to cool naturally.

Propane works well on most weights up to 1/4 inch.  Over that, use mapp gas or a more intense heat source.

Note: Remember that the thicker the material, the longer it takes to reach the proper temperature. On heavier work or to save time, you can use oxygen acetylene. Always use a Rosebud tip or a neutral flame with oxygen acetylene. Do not put the rod in the direct flame while brazing with HTS�2000 Flux less Brazing Rods.

 

REMEMBER: WELDING/BRAZING CAN BE DANGEROUS

ALWAYS USE THE APPROPRIATE SAFETY EQUIPMENT INCLUDING EYE PROTECTION

Instructions for the 528-Brazing Rods

 

Melting the base metal is not necessary since the 528 rod has a built-in flux. Consequently, clearance should be around .003 for maximum tensile and shear strength. The 528 rod takes extreme heat, above 760�C to penetrate the pores of the metal so you will need oxygen and gas to produce this heat. HTS-528 can be used to braze cast iron, brass, nickel, copper, and more than 50 different kinds of steel, including stainless. Open the pours around the area to be repaired, drill, and grind out a U shape in the metal, so it is no longer a hairline crack.

 

We recommend first practicing with cast iron by grinding a slot 1 - 3mm wide into the metal. Use a brazing tip to bring the metal to 760�C . The metal will start to turn red at 315�C, but continue heating, test the rod on the metal 5-6 mm outside the bulk of the flame. The rod has a flux core that will melt much lower than the rod, so if the rod itself will not melt, have patience. When you are close to 760�C, it will look like you're going to burn a hole in the metal but do not worry. Once you see the rod itself is melting, scratch the rod all around the area to be repaired. The rod will melt and, with the help of the flux core, will fuse down into the metal.

 

When you pull the torch away, it will be cherry red for about 20 seconds. If you have followed the instructions explicitly and scratched the rod all around the area to be repaired thoroughly allowing the flux to mix with the melted rod you will have the strongest weld possible on that particular metal. You may then grind, shape, polish, and paint as desired.

How to Use Aluminium Brazing Rods

Used with nothing more than a heat source, such as propane or oxy-acetylene!


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. Check out our demonstration videos to see how you can use HTS 2000 Aluminium brazing rods

 

The results are unquestionable. The repairs are stronger than new.

  • Requires No Flux. Metal-to-Metal Bond. 100% Metal Alloy.

  • Stronger than the Base Metal - up to 45,900 PSI.

  • Low Temperature. Between 380�C - 408�C Working Temperature.

  • Over 260�C Below Melt Point of Aluminium.

  • Use Any Heat Source, such as propane, butane, mapp, or an oxy-acetylene torch.

  • Stores Safely and Indefinitely. Simple - Versatile - Portable.

  • Brazes all Aluminium Alloys, including zinc, magnesium, pot metal, and cast.

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.

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.

Instructions for using HTS�2000

Step 1:
Clean the area to be worked with a file, grinder, or wire brush. This "2nd Generation" brazing rod does not require a special brush to make it work!

Step 2:
Heat the work surface (not the brazing rod) until the work surface is hot enough to melt the rod, just as you would if using a solder. DO NOT PUT THE ROD IN THE FLAME. You must bring the temperature of the base metal up to the melting point of the HTS�2000 Fluxless Brazing Rod. Open the pores of the work surface with heat for the rod to penetrate the surface.

Step 3:
For threads and thin aluminium, tin the housing with the rod itself by scratching on the housing when the appropriate temperature is reached. For all other uses, use the tinning brush (included) to tin the area with HTS�2000, when the appropriate temperature is reached. Then do your build up for excellent results.

Step 4:
When the repair is completed, always allow to cool naturally. Propane works well on most weights up to 6mm thick. Over that, use mapp gas.

Note: Remember that the thicker the material, the longer it takes to reach the proper temperature. On heavier work or to save time, you can use oxygen acetylene. Always use a Rosebud tip or a neutral flame with oxygen acetylene. Do not put the rod in the direct flame while brazing with HTS�2000 Fluxless Brazing Rods.
