Brazing

Obtaining the mechanical properties of welding without melting the base metal, MG’s line of brazing and soldering alloys are easy to use and provide strong, safe joints. Utilizing flexible, super-active flux coatings, MG’s cadmium-free silver alloys offer outstanding fluidity with minimal flux, offering the most silver per pound, and less clean up. Available in a variety of forms, MG’s solders offer an even lower temperature alternative without sacrificing quality or performance.

Fluxes

MG’s line of fluxes are specially designed to promote surface alloying and to help the operator determine the optimum base metal temperature for brazing to begin. Protecting the braze or solder zone from atmospheric contamination, MG fluxes promote good capillary action and flowability.
