CHAPTER 6 SOLDERING, BRAZING, BRAZE WELDING, AND WEARFACING

The information presented in chapter 5 covered the joining of metal parts by the process of fusion welding. In this chapter, procedures that do not require fusion are addressed. These procedures are as follows: soldering, brazing, braze welding, and wearfacing. These proce­dures allow the joining of dissimilar metals and produce high-strength joints. Additionally, they have the impor­tant advantages of not affecting the heat treatment or warping the original metal as much as conventional welding.

SOLDERING

Soldering is a method of using a filler metal (com­monly known as solder) for joining two metals without heating them to their melting points. Soldering is valu­able to the Steelworker because it is a simple and fast means for joining sheet metal, making electrical connec­tions, and sealing seams against leakage. Additionally, it is used to join iron, nickel, lead, tin, copper, zinc, aluminum, and many other alloys.

Soldering is not classified as a welding or brazing process, because the melting temperature of solder is below 800°F. Welding and brazing usually take place above 800°F. The one exception is lead welding that occurs at 621°F. Do not confuse the process of SILVER SOLDERING with soldering, for this process is actually a form of brazing, because the temperature used is above 800°F.

This chapter describes the following: equipment and materials required for soldering, the basic methods used to make soldered joints, and the special techniques required to solder aluminum alloys.
