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.

 

welding stainless steel

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.

Stainless Steel

Although stainless steel is one of the most widely used metals, stainless steel welding can be extremely challenging. Cutting, drilling, soldering, and welding stainless steel is difficult mainly because the metal is a poor heat conductor and has a high rate of thermal expansion. It also reacts badly to excessive heat, causing it to warp. Thankfully, we have a unique line of products that can help make stainless steel soldering and brazing tasks easier.

Super Alloy 1, SSQ-6, and SSF-6 silver solder are all designed for use with stainless steel. Allowing for easier and more effective repair and welding jobs, many of our products melt at high temperatures and can be used on a variety of metals, such as brass, copper, bronze, cast iron, and stainless steel. For soldering and brazing tasks, or for welding stainless steel, SSQ-6 and SSF-6 can also be used with any heat source and can last for long periods with minimal care.

Stainless Plates Silver Soldered with Muggyweld SSF-6 Brazing Rod

We are using SSF-6 Silver Solder to join two stainless steel plates together at 1150 degrees. The braze was made with a very small amount of silver solder, it doesn't need much as the alloy is over 70,000 psi. A propane torch was the gas used in this video and the solder is flux coated.

Stainless Steel Welding

We use SSF-6 to solder stainless to stainless with an oxyacetylene torch. After finishing, clean up the flux with water and a wire brush.

How to Repair Steel with Silver Solder

SSQ-6 is the perfect solution for jobs like this--parts are balancing, and if a rod were used they could easily be knocked over but the silver solder almost glues them together and acts like a jig when heated.

Silver Solder Paste: How to Silver Solder

This deep sea pole has a broken eyelet. We make the repair with SSQ-6 and a propane torch, as well as Cool Blue Heat Paste.
