Fluxless Brazing Rod was developed for Aluminum, Magnesium, cast
aluminum and cast Magnesium including
most of their alloys. It
has it's most strength and is most easily used on these metals. HTS-735II Fluxless Brazing Rod also
works well on most of the other Non Ferrous metals EXCEPT Stainless
Follow these 3 simple steps
and you will have a strong perfect weld every time.
Step # 1: Clean the
area to be worked with a file, grinder or wire brush. This
"2nd Generation" welding rod does not require a special brush
in order 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. Do this 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-735II
Fluxless Brazing Rod. You must open the pores of the work surface
with heat in order for the rod to penetrate the surface.
Step # 3: When the
weld is completed, always allow to cool naturally. Propane works
well on most weights up to 1/4 inch. Note: Remember the
thicker the material to be welded, 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. Never put the rod in the direct flame while
brazing with HTS-735II Fluxless Brazing Rods.
