These alloys are the optimum choice for a large range of industrial metal joining applications. The free-flowing properties of these alloys, coupled with good joint strengths means that they find use when joining dissimilar parent metals (e.g. stainless steel, mild steels, brasses, bronzes and copper) in a wide range of environments, from industrial cooling to food and pharmaceutical manufacture.
The use of a suitable flux for the parent metal / brazing alloy combination is a requirement for these alloys.
The table below details the alloys that are silicon free and generally preferred by UK manufacturers.
