SIL-CAN comes in all
standard formulations to suit many brazing applications.
All SIL-CAN Brazing Alloys meet applicable military and
government specifications. Available in stick, rod, wire,
preforms and rings. We also produce brazing flux and ACTION
TIN, a proprietary tinning paint available in tin-lead
and LEAD-FREE formulations.
0: Extremely fluid, economical alloy for close
fitting joints with clearances from .001 to .003. It is
self-fluxing on copper and contains no silver. Brazing
temperatures 1350°F to 1550°F.
SIL-CAN PREMIUM: Ductile,
fluid alloy for economical torch or induction brazing.
Works well on joint clearances from .001 to .005. Similar
to SIL-CAN 0 but lower brazing temperature and better
melting makes it easier to use. Brazing range 1300°F
SIL-CAN 5: More economical
than SIL-CAN 15, with a slightly higher melting range.
It's a tough ductile alloy for brazing on average joint
clearances. Conforms to ASTM BCuP-3 and contains 5% silver.
Brazing temperature is 1300°F.
SIL-CAN 15: Most widely
used and easiest to use silver brazing alloy for copper
and copper alloys, combining the highest ductility with
the lowest brazing temperatures. It is used when close
fit-ups cannot be maintained, and is self-fluxing on copper
to copper joints. Ideal on air conditioners, radiators,
electrical connections, etc. Contains 15% silver. Brazing
temperature is 1300°F. (Copper alloys such as brass
and bronze need SIL-CAN WHITE CREAM BRAZING FLUX.)
SIL-CAN 35: For use
on steel and all ferrous and non-ferrous metals. An excellent
alloy for torch-brazing where fit-up is poor to average
and large fillets are required. Almost the same strength
as SIL-CAN 45. Contains 35% silver and has a brazing temperature
of 1250°F to 1300°. Use SIL-CAN WHITE CREAM BRAZING
FLUX for all SIL-CAN 35.
