Pot Metal Repair

Testimonials

Mike,

These pics come from a new aerospace test facility that they are constructing at the University of Notre Dame. The SSF-6 is working great.

I am attempting to make all of these fittings air tight as they are used for pressure measurements. We can¹t have any leaks. I had very little warpage of my base metal and I think this is really going to work out very well.

Inexpensive casting alloys or pot metal can be difficult to work on because of their low melting point. Whether you're soldering pot metal for a repair job, or restoring original pot metal classic car parts, you can work on the alloy with ease and prevent it from pitting or breaking easily when you use quality rods from Muggy Weld.

 

Other rods melt at 700º and can be dangerously close to melting the metal before you even apply them. On the other hand, Super Alloy 1 from Muggy Weld has a melting point of 350º and unique properties that make pot metal restoration and repairs easier than ever before. To help you prevent damaging the base metal, the non-corrosive flux acts as a temperature guide turns root beer brown when the base metal reaches 350º. As the rod and flux work synergistically, Super Alloy 1 helps you make repairs that are as strong your base metal.
