Can you braze aluminum to aluminum?
Similarly, will brazing stick to aluminum?
Yes, but you need a really strong brazing rod that will heat through the anodized layer. Anodized aluminum is essentially aluminum with another layer of metal on it, so the rod has to be strong enough to heat through the anodized layer and reach the aluminum.
Similarly, can you braze aluminum with a propane torch? In either case if you have a propane torch and brazing rods you can weld aluminum.
Likewise, people ask, can you solder to aluminum?
Pure aluminum can be soldered, although it is not an easy metal to work with. Many aluminum objects are actually aluminum alloys. Most of these can be soldered the same way, but a few of them are very difficult to work with and may need to be taken to a professional welder.
What flux is used for aluminum?
Anti-Borax No. 8 Aluminum Welding Flux is used for welding aluminum metal in sheet, extruded and cast form. The flux is an excellent solvent for aluminum oxide, promoting strong joints free of oxide inclusions.
