Selecting the Correct Flux –WHAT? The first requirement of an Aluminium brazing is to be chemically effective. Fluxes are categorized as active (corrosive) and inert (noncorrosive). Fluoride base fluxes → NON‐CORROSIVE The fluxes leave the white gritty residue on the part. These fluxes include the higher temperature potassium aluminium fluoride and the lower activated cesium

Aluminium joining – Brazing ‐ Flux function What is brazing? Brazing is the joining of metals using a molten filler metal. On melting, the filler metal spreads between the closely fitted surfaces, forms a fillet around the joint and on cooling forms a metallurgical bond. By technical definition ‘brazing’ is a joining process in which the filler metal

Concept and Definitions In addition to the standard methods of applying flux to heat exchanger components (wet fluxing and dry fluxing), there is an increasing trend to using sophisticated flux formulations for selective pre-fluxing of components and/or localized fluxing of complicated geometries. The driving force behind this trend is multi-faceted: heat exchanger manufacturers are seeking

Flux-Green-Filler-Stop – This far, but no further

Mar 27
2015

Flux-Green-Filler-Stop (GFS) “stops” molten brazing filler metal from flowing into areas where it is unwanted, thus the surfaces remain clean and free from the presence of any filler metal. Brazing filler metals do not like to bond with, or flow over, any dirt, grease, or oxides so the presence of any of such contaminants can
