Brazing Selection Requirements Involve Multiple Considerations

Appropriate brazing materials selection is based a combination of these factors


    • Temperature – What temperatures will the seal experience during testing. Installation and final operating conditions?
    • Atmosphere – Some brazing under certain atmosphere conditions can cause unreliable ceramic-to-metal joints.
    • Compatibility – Is the brazing material compatible with the metal components in the seal?
    • Cost – Consider the actual need of the application before specifying costly pure gold or silver brazing materials, if one of the less expensive alloys will work as well.
