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

  • 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.

 

Aluminium Thread Repair

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.

Gas Welding

Gas welding of aluminium or other alloys is a snap with the HTS-2000 brazing rod. Many machine shops and repair shops who used to use Tig welding machines, heli-arc machines, and welding rods now rave about our second-generation brazing rods for gas welding that they use with a simple torch such as propane or mapp gas, a turbo tip, or oxy-acetylene.

Usually, when reactive metals such as aluminium are gas welded, they need to be covered with flux in order to exclude oxygen from the molten metal, keeping oxides from forming which in turn decrease the strength of the weld. With the HTS-2000 industrial-strength brazing rod, however, no flux is required for gas welding.

Because no welding machines are needed in gas welding, with our products it means much more portability for you. Your gas welding tank can be carried into the field for necessary repairs as needed and there is no need for an electrical outlet nearby. In addition, gas welding tanks are portable on a truck or a trailer, self sufficient and the equipment is relatively of low cost. Portability around a large shop is also important for those doing gas welding and our high-end brazing rod helps in this endeavor.

When combined with a gas welding torch, the HTS-2000 offers more tensile strength and elongation, the ability to penetrate past impurities like antifreeze, oil, and corrosion and a melting temperature 260�C less than that of aluminium. The welded area will become stronger than the surrounding base metal. In addition, gas welding with our industrial-strength brazing rod can be used to fabricate or repair trucks, tractors, diesel engines, automobiles, airplanes, motorcycles, aluminium boats, gutters, ladders, awnings, brackets and aluminium rivets.

When beginning your gas welding project, the flame can be directed to impinge primarily upon the thicker element which should absorb more heat. The thinnest element can be shielded in part from the flame by interposing our high-tech brazing rod as needed. The filler metal deposition rate is easily controlled by pushing or pulling the brazing rod from the tip of the welding gas flame.

Welding Alternative

Welding machine be gone! That is the cry you will hear from us as no welding machine is necessary when using our HTS-2000 and HTS-528 high-end brazing rods. If you're looking for a new welding machine or welding machine supplies, why not try something that is much more portable and costs far less to operate?

With our industry-strength brazing rods all that is needed is a heat source such as such as butane, propane, mapp, or an oxy-acetylene torch. In fact, when you've made the switch to our line of products you will never go back to your old welding machine again. Why be tied down to a welding machine when you can bring your torch where its needed and get even better results?

For aluminium brazing and welding, our HTS-2000 second-generation brazing rods provide more tensile strength and greater elongation than other products. For aluminium repair that is stronger than a welding machine try our no flux rods, which can fabricate and repair all sorts of items including trucks, diesel engine, automobiles, tractors, airplanes, motorcycles, aluminium boats, ladders, aluminium rivets, fuel tanks, wheels, awnings, gutters, brackets and even do thread repair.

Because of its superior advanced technology, our brazing rod has rendered the welding machine obsolete. It is manufactured with nine alloys in a hi-tech process that makes it three times more flexible and stronger than any other rod on the market.

Still holding onto that welding machine? For cast iron, steel, copper, bronze, nickel, and brass welding projects, try our new HTS-528 industrial-strength brazing rod. Melting the base metal is not necessary since the HTS-528 rod has a built-in flux and is extremely effective in joining dissimilar materials. The 528 is the perfect rod to use for high-heat applications up to 760�C including joining cast iron ears or repairing cracks in blocks.

So, whether you're working with aluminium, cast iron or other metals and need the flexibility, portability and durability that a torch and our product line can provide, isn't it time you put that welding machine in a corner and tried something that will make your life a little easier?
