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.

Super Alloy 1 is ideal for aluminum welding applications when aesthetics are a concern
Super Alloy 5 Aluminum Welding Rod Repairs an Aluminum Boat Propeller
A first time welder uses Super Alloy 1 and an oxyacetylene torch to join brass to aluminum at 350 degrees
A Holley Street Dominator Intake Manifold is repaired with Super Alloy 5 and an oxy-acetylene torch
Occasionally, aluminum parts are polished too aggressively, resulting in burn through, as is the case with these 1965 Impala SS Cove Moldings.
How to join aluminum to stainless steel. Super Alloy 1 can also be used to join pot metal, zinc die cast, lead, bronze, steel, copper, or brass--in any combination.
Proper brazing technique is discussed, as well as how to choose a torch for brazing your aluminum boat--without special machinery or disassembly.
Aluminum boats can be problematic in many ways: cracks, holes, rivets, seams etc. Repair your aluminum boat quickly and easily with Super Alloy 5 aluminum rod and flux.
Create a water-tight, air-tight seal around leaky rivets with Super Alloy 5 and an oxyacetylene torch. Never settle for temporary epoxy repairs again.
Super Alloy 5 troubleshooting, tips, and correct brazing techniques are demonstrated on an aluminum hood molding.
Repairing aluminized steel can be challenging, as standard stainless steel products are ineffective on the aluminized coating. Super Alloy 5 aluminum alloy eliminates this problem and creates a weld strength bond at only 600°F.
3003 aluminum is a non-heat treatable alloy used primarily for sheet metal work, duct work, and chemical equipment, as well as in the manufacture of a wide variety of aluminum parts. Super Alloy 5 is used to braze the aluminum with weld strength.
Brazing two thin aluminum plates at over 30,000 PSI using Super Alloy 5 rod and flux. First wire brush your aluminum to remove the oxides, broadly heat your base metal and add your flux with the torch.
We are repairing a hole in an aluminum radiator with Super Alloy 1, low temp solder. We cleaned the area with a dremel tool and used a propane torch and Super Alloy 1 to seal the hole.
Demonstration of how to fix two holes in an aluminum air conditioning tube with Super Alloy 5 rod and flux. One of the holes has not been cleaned before soldering or brazing.
Demonstration of the strength of Super Alloy 5--we soldered two aluminum plates together only using a very small amount of rod and flux. John of (John Barrett Works) invited us up to his shop to assist with some aluminum brazing and was also kind enough to hold the camera while the soldering was taking place.
2 holes in an aluminum tube are soldered with a torch using Super Alloy 1 soldering rod and flux. This demo shows how easy it is to fix any thin aluminum with no burn thru or distortion of the parent metal. Aluminum doesn't turn red like most metals so it is hard to tell when you are going to ruin the aluminum part.
Super Alloy 1 multi metal solder joins aluminum to galvanized steel at 350 degrees--a bonding strength of 20,000 psi. The low melting solder uses a separate flux, dip the rod into the flux and drip or paint your parent metal with our unique liquid flux.
Yes, Super Alloy 1 can solder brass to aluminum. In this clip we join these 2 metals and demonstrate the strength of the repair.
In this video clip, Mike fills a dime-sized hole in aluminum with Super Alloy 5 and an oxyacetylene torch.
A 7 inch cut in an aluminum bumper reinforcement is welded with Super Alloy 5. We have posted this video at a sped up rate due to the length of the repair.
This Toyota Land Cruiser cast aluminum intake manifold had a 3 inch cut across it. Super Alloy 5 is ideal for fixing cast aluminum, so we used an oxyacetylene torch to make the repair. We recommend using oxy-acetylene on all thicker aluminum because it can sometimes be difficult to keep the base metal at the correct temperature with propane or MAPP gas.
A cracked cast aluminum transmission case is repaired with Super Alloy 5 and an oxyacetylene torch. Due to the thickness of the aluminum, we recommend using oxy-acetylene and a size 3 or 4 tip. Once you get the cast to the proper working temperature, the aluminum filler rod flows in wonderfully.
This clip shows how to join aluminum a/c fittings using the same material thousands of auto repair shops and auto air conditioning shops use daily. It is no longer necessary to wait up to a month for replacement parts for your a/c system. Super Alloy 5 is a quick, inexpensive solution to all your a/c problems, enabling you to make aluminum repairs yourself.
2 plates side by side demonstrating how to fill gaps in aluminum with Super Alloy 5.
After joining 2 aluminum plates we put the strength of Super Alloy 5 to the test. Watch as the plates are put into a vice, as well as an attempt at pulling the plates apart with pliers.
In this clip: how to determine when to use propane and when to use oxyacetylene when repairing aluminum. Soldering vs. Brazing.
This clip is especially for ATV owners. It demonstrates an aluminum radiator being repaired repaired from a vertical angle with our Super Alloy 5 and an oxyacetylene torch. If you can get to the damaged area with a torch you can fix it without removing it from the ATV.
"Can I weld thick to thin aluminum?" is a common question among our viewers. In this video, Super Alloy 5 and an oxyacetylene torch are used to join a heavy section of aluminum to a thin piece of aluminum tubing.
Often in the refrigeration industry, it is necessary to join copper to aluminum tubing from an evaporator. Sound impossible? Our Super Alloy 1 makes it easy work..
This clip demonstrates how to join copper to aluminum using Super Alloy 1, the 350o solder, with a propane torch.This technique is useful for many applications including: Home and Commercial refrigeration Metal Sculpting Ornamental Art German Auto Air Conditioning Repair Air Conditioning Repair
2 aluminum plates being welded with Super Alloy 5. This demonstrates the flow of Super Alloy 5 as well as the capillary action (flow from front to back, side to side)
How to video: MIke demonstrates how to weld aluminum a/c fittings with super alloy 5, the same product used in thousands of radiator and air conditioning repairs shops worldwide.
An Aluminum boat is riddled with holes from corrosion from salt water. Steve is a first time muggyweld.com customer using the Super Alloy 5 and an oxyacetylene torch to make the repairs.
How to weld differing thicknesses of aluminum together.
Steve at Alternative Automotive makes a repair on a very corroded portion of his aluminum boat using Super Alloy 5. Hiring a welder to come out and make these repairs could have cost a fortune, but now Steve is able to weld all the holes himself at a fraction of the cost.
Demonstration of how to protect your heat sensitive surfaces without disassembling your parts.
