Can this be used with aluminum

Can this be used in combination with a MAPP Gas Torch to repair a snapped wheel bracket on a boxspring mattress frame?

Asked by: Hector
Chances are, if done correctly, the a Mapp gas torch could do the job, but be aware that all that steel will act as a large heat-sink, so you will probably need to do a lot of preheating away from the target area, or else you will find that you really don't have enough heat present. Of course, torch size enters into the equation here; a smaller size torch probably will fail, or do a lousy job. Admittedly, this job is probably best handled using acetylene, where air-acetylene should be more than adequate, rather than requiring oxy-acetylene. Best of Luck.

Can map pro be used with this product?

Asked by: G389
Sure, Mapp-Pro not only can be used with this product... it is to be favored over straight propane. Now if your question is in comparison to using acetylene for the job, then Mapp-Pro would probably not be your best choice, depending on the area needing to be heated. In other words... if the area to be heated to this product's requirements (approx. 1650 to 1800 deg. F) is large, then it would be better to use acetylene, but if the heat requirement is small, then Mapp-Pro can more than adequately be the fuel you can use. Good Luck!

Can this be used on copper

Asked by: Loletta
The answer to your question is both a yes and no. Here's why that is the case. Yes you can, in the absolute sense, use this product on copper, but shouldn't for the main reason that it flows at around 1700 degrees F., and copper melts at a bit hotter than 1900 deg. F. Unless you're very experienced, chances are that you would melt the copper too! Additionally, this product is much, much stronger than the underlying copper, which will be altered by the extreme heating process to be noticeably softer than before. So.... yes, but a very bad idea! Though your question didn't ask for alternative ideas, here's what experienced folks would use: either a phosphorus bearing brazing rod, or any of the high-content silver brazing rod / wire and flux. Though the various alloys have differing flowing temperatures, all flow at temperatures at or below 1500 deg. F. The phosphorus bearing types are self-fluxing, thus making them the most popular for joining copper, while the high silver content brazing materials with flux offer better high vibration resistance, at higher cost. These alternatives are a much better choice for joining copper than bronze brazing rods, which work well on steel, etc.

WB5 Bronze Flux Coated Brazing and Welding Rods is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.

But I purchased these to braze stainless steel bolts to a motorcycle gas tank to pull dents out. Needed a MAPP gas torch to get the metal RED hot. Be patient, you really need to get the working material and the rod hot enough so the rod becomes liquid and shiny to form a good fillet bond. What's nice is that when I need to remove the bolt after the dent is pulled, I just head the bronze to 1,650F and pull it off.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from They work well enough, but you only get 3 rods in the package. The fill material is a good bronze and the flux coating shields it well, in short, they work well. The description doesn't mention that the working temperature is 1620°F, 882°C, and the stated material strength is 60ksi. Compared to other retail offerings like the Lincoln Electric flux coated brazing rods also sold at Home Depot, these rods are an exceptionally poor value. The Bernzomatic WB5 is 3 3/32" rods with flux coating for $4, the Lincoln Electric KH515 is 1 lb which is 20 1/8" rods with flux coating for $6.50. Lincoln Electric also has 3/32" brazing rods for sale in home centers, but they are a special order item at Home Depot.
