Silicon for aluminium brazing
Silicon: a key element for enhanced aluminium brazing and great bonding
Aluminium Brazing is an advanced process used to produce high performance
heat exchangers, radiators, evaporators, and condensers in the automotive industry, in particular in new generation hybrid and electrical vehicles. It is also used for non-automotive applications, such as air conditioning and refrigeration.
Aluminium brazing joins metal parts using torchwork with a nonferrous flux using gas, heated to a much lower temperature (400°C) than that used in traditional soldering This means that brazing offers significant advantages over gas welding: it uses less energy, the brazing filler is more fluid (flowing by capillary action), is quicker to achieve a strong bond and produce a smoother and better-looking finish.
Silgrain® Braze is a tailored Silicon with homogenous quality and available in industrial volumes.
Special care is taken to closely control the particle size distribution and minimise the risk of oversize particles in our SILGRAIN® Braze product.
We offer a great variety of purities and sizes – please contact us! Our experts are always available to support you, discuss technical information and processing issues and provide samples and quotes. Please feel free to get in touch
