Will this work well on a small crack on my pontoon boat

Asked by Gary May 17, 2020

Answer

It's brazing not welding. Think of it as an aluminum glue stick that holds things together, but doesn't melt them together. If your crack is above the waterline and you just want to keep water from splashing in, it might work to plus the gap, but it's not going to stop the crack from expanding.

I have a set of IROC cast aluminum wheels. there are a few areas of "road rash" that I would like to fill and build up.

You probably could with a truckload of patience. It would be much easier to find some sheet aluminum and cut a patch.

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.

Used and entire bottle of map gas and three brazing rods trying to fix a small hole in an aluminum boat. Saw a lot of videos online they show a very easy process. Not the case however. At least not with these rods. Aluminum never reached a temp to melt rod. Rods broke off in about 1/8” pieces and fell off boat. #jbweld for the win!
