Superior Flux is proud to have had yet another article published in an important trade journal, this time the June 2020 edition of Welding Journal.
The topic is open air brazing of Titanium, which is quite the challenge. But Superior Flux never shies away from a challenge.
Titanium is a great alloy. It is strong, corrosion resistant and relatively light. Not surprisingly, Titanium is often a go-to alloy in medical and aerospace components, as well as in many familiar objects, such as eyeglass frames, bicycle frames and golf clubs, to name a few.
For all its virtues, there is a downside to Titanium. It oxidizes so rapidly that it is virtually impossible to solder, and it can only be brazed in a controlled atmosphere furnace.
Open air brazing of Titanium was previously believed to be impossible; there simply wasn’t a brazing flux and alloy combination that was active enough to overcome Titanium’s aggressive oxidation formation.
But that was until Superior Flux took on the Titanium brazing challenge. The result was our unique line of Titanium Brazing Flux (our TiBF-19) and Titanium Brazing Alloy (TBA-1).
