    Answer This Question

    A:  It depends on the pressure that might be against it and you might have to grind out a cone to give the new material something to make a more solid repair but I've used it to repair thin sheet metal heat guards.

      This product worked while another brand did not.
      I needed to braze two aluminum 2x2 inch extrusion elbow joints together for solidity. I tried another brand which did not melt until the aluminum did. I bought the Bernzomatic AL3 rods and they worked properly. I used an infrared thermometer during heating of the aluminum with a MAP gas torch to monitor the heating process. It took longer than I expected for the aluminum to get up to 730F but when it was finally there, the application of the rod went smoothly like soldering. The result is a rock solid weld so I'm good with this.

        Great for boat prop repair
        I used these to repair a broken boat prop and they work extremely well. Much cheaper than a new prop. I highly recommend these.. extremely easy to use.

          Very useful for aluminum boat repair. Did what I needed it to. Best to get an extra pack or two because it takes practice to get it right.

          Requires flux to work well, expensive for just two rods
          If you use these rods by themselves, they will work, but they will not adhere to the aluminum very well. I did several tests and although the joint held without stress, I was able to break the test joint apart fairly easily with some pliers. The 'solder' produced by the rods just doesn't adhere well to the aluminum, no matter how well I brushed or cleaned the surface. After watching a YouTube video by a company that sells aluminum brazing flux and rods, I tried some powdered brazing flux with these rods to see if the flux helped. Massive improvement. The flux turned to liquid when the aluminum was hot enough, and when the brazing rod melted on the joint, the flux pulled it into the joint with capillary action. The resulting brazed joint had a smooth surface, like a smooth weld, and the solder flowed on both sides. The resulting joint using powdered flux was so strong that I was unable to tear it apart. The aluminum tore around the joint while the brazing held strong. So when used with flux, these rods produce a very strong joint. If you need to braze aluminum in a pinch and can't wait to for flux and more economical rods to arrive in the mail, these rods will work, but not very well. I highly recommend getting some aluminum brazing flux, as it makes a huge difference. While these only costs $4, $2 per brazing rod is quite expensive, so if you are going to the effort of getting some brazing flux, you can also get a pack of a few dozen rods from the same source for just a few dollars more.

          The pricing of these Brazing Rods is absolutely ridiculous. They do as they are supposed to but at that price you’d expect them to create fairy dust

            Waaay too expensive just for 2 rods but I needed to finish a job. Won't buy again. For a couple dollars more, could've bought a 12 pak of Hobart's but none available locally.
