Bare

Solid
PL 8305

Aluminum Braze - Bare
Low heat, thin fl owing, bare aluminum brazing rod for dirty applications. Highly active flux is cleanly contained inside the rod and is thus protected from contamination. If additional flux is desired, use 8001.
Tensile: 30,000 psi
Hardness: HB 50
Elongation: 15%

MSDS

Cored
PL 8242

Aluminum Braze - Flux Cored
Easy to use, all position flux-cored aluminum brazing rod for dirty applications. Highly active flux is cleanly contained inside the rod and is protected from contamination. If additional flux is desired, use 8001.
Tensile: 30,000 psi
Hardness: HB 50
Elongation: 20%

Solder

Kit
PL 8246

Aluminum Solder Kit
Low temperature aluminum solder with increased corrosion resistance and higher strength than ordinary soft solders. Complex alloy system offers excellent wetting and flow characteristics on almost all ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Use with flux 8012.
Tensile: 22,000 psi
Working Temperature: 509°F (265°C)

MSDS

Strength
PL 8247

Self Fluxing Aluminum Solder
