Home Solders, brazing alloys

Solders are relatively low melting metal alloys (usually eutectics), which melt in the temperatue range between 180 and 1000°C. One differentiates between solders (melting point <450°C) and brazing alloys (melting point >450°C).

For the brazing of light metals for example aluminium is used, with which the melting point of 658°C is lowered by admixtures of Zn, Sn, Ni, Cd or Si to 500-620°C. An important solder for the brazing of light alloys are such brazing alloys on the basis of aluminium and silicon.
