Alcam #70 (Aluminum)
Aluminum. Finally, an aluminum electrode that
will give good results. This is an excellent running electrode
that can even be torched for thinner material. The Alcam #70 is less
subject to moisture and is best when stored in a warm/dry environment.
• Tensile Strength – 34,000 PSI
• Elongation - 25% Elongation
• Hardness – 40-50 Brinnel
• Good Color Match
APPLICATIONS & PROCEDURES:
The #70 is exceptional for repair of machining errors, build up of
missing sections of castings, extrusions, plates, etc. Applications
include, truck, bus, and automotive parts repair, and also, tank,
pipe, ladder, shelves, refrigeration equipment, foundry patterns and
many other aluminum structures. For best results, pre-heat to 250°
and clean base metal with aluminum or stainless abrasives.
ELECTRODE: 3/32” 1/8” 5/32”
TIG & MIG: All popular sizes
Alcam # 72 (Aluminum-Zinc- Copper)
ALL HEAT SOURCES
joining of many metals, Pot-metal and Zinc included. Zinc
cadmium alloy has excellent wetting and flow characteristics on almost
all ferrous and non-ferrous metals.
Strength – 35,000 PSI
• 500 Degree melt temp.
Its strength remains relatively high even at temperatures up to 350ºF
(175ºC). Better corrosion resistance and higher strength than
ordinary soft solders but the bonding temperature is much lower than
the silver brazing alloys. Therefore, it is the ideal intermediate
alloy for joining.
The #72 is best
product for application such as, Aluminum tube, copper tube, refrigeration
and air conditioning units, aluminum radiators, sheet metal work,
manufacture and repair of instruments, zinc base die casting, and
joining of dissimilar metals. Alcam # 72 can also be used on anodized
aluminum. Product comes with a honey flux, directions included.
