It is designed for joining dissimilar metals, excellent for stainless steel and all other metals, except white metals.
Ideal applications for 165 are instrumentation
Pattern and trim work
Piping and tubing
food product vessels
Laboratory apparatus and more.
Contains NO cheap, inferior cadmium and lead type fillers
Excellent for Nickel and Nickel base alloys
Superior results on steels and stainless steels, copper and copper base alloys and high speed steels
Extremely low melting poing – 620C
Good corrosion resistance
Bare or Flux coated available
Astro 165 Prevents downtime and provides the maintenance person with a silver alloy for all the requirements.
Bonding Temperature: 620C to 650C (1150F to 1200F)
Tensile Strength: Up to 52,000 P.S.I. (340 Mpa)
Using a slightly carburizing flame, heat until the flux turns clear.
The alloys can be applied to the base metal as it starts to turn red, allowing the alloy to flow freely on delicate base metal applications.
