Thread repair is easy with the HTS-2000 second-generation brazing rod. If you're looking for a Helicoil thread repair alternative you've come to the right place. With our industrial-strength brazing rod, simply fill a hole with the brazing rod material and drop a hot steel bolt into it. When cool, the steel bolt can be backed out and new threads are produced.
You probably know that sickening feeling already. You've tightened a bolt almost as tight as it can go and you give it that one last twist "just for good measure" and then you feel the wrench spinning freely and loosely. You've stripped the threads. With our HTS-2000 brazing rod, you can complete your thread repair in minutes.
The HTS-2000 is permanent, erosion resistant and can be done with any torch. Three times stronger and more flexible than the first generation rods, the thread repair made with our product is stronger than the original material.
Simpler to use than Helicoil, our HTS-2000 brazing rod can repair threads for many automotive, aerospace, military and industrial applications. Unlike Helicoil, there are no inserts, taps, gages and tang break-off tools to mess with. As with Helicoil, though, you will most likely need an oversized drill bit to drill out the hole, first.
Instead of placing inserts into the hole, use a torch and drop some off our high-tech brazing rod material right into the hole. Heat the steel bolt to 400�C or above and drop the bolt into the hole. Let the metal cool for 15 - 30 minutes and then using a spanner, back out the steel bolt from the hole. Your thread repair is complete. You've just repaired a thread faster, more efficiently and stronger than a Helicoil thread repair.
The HTS-2000 second-generation brazing rod requires no flux, is stronger than the base metal and melts at 260�C below that of aluminium. No welding machine is needed as any torch such as propane, butane, mapp, or an oxy-acetylene will do. For expert thread repair, you don't have to be expert to use our high-end brazing rod.
