Description

1.2MM COPPER MIG BRAZING WIRE 4KG SPOOL (C9)

BS 2901 1990 Pt3 C9 CuSi3

A 4kg single spool of 1.2mm Copper MIG brazing wire (CuSi3).  Precision wound wire, constructed from Silicon (3%) and manganese (1%) and copper (balance).  Perfect for vehicle repair, brazing wire has a low melting point to reduce heat transfer in the weld zone and hence limits warping and burn through of thin bodywork panels.  CuSi3  also allows joining of dissimilar, galvanised and high strength steels, commonly used in vehicle construction.

Use this MIG wire for joining copper, bronze, brass and other base materials of similar composition.  In addition, Due to the unique chemical composition of this product it is highly resistant to the effects of corrosion, which increases longevity of the finished join.

Furthermore, Copper brazing wire has excellent mechanical properties. Such as high tensile and shear strength, as a result they can withstand significant forces without failing, breaking or compromising structural integrity.  This wire has a lower melting point which as a result produces minimal fumes and smoke during the brazing process.  Making it a safer option for operatives and the working environment.

BRAZING APPLICATIONS.

Copper MIG Brazing Wire is used in a wide range of industrial settings which includes -:

Automotive – Particularly beneficial where there is a requirement for joining zinc coated steel.  It is also used for the repairing of collision damaged vehicles.

Construction – Because of it’s ability to withstand high levels of stress, resistance to corrosion and durability it is often a preferred option where these factors are crucial.

Artistic Foundries – Copper MIG Brazing Wire is often chosen in artistic foundries, this is due to it’s excellent colour matching capacity.

Because of it’s excellent mechanical properties this brazing wire is also commonly used in light fabrication and manufacturing.

Brazing Vs Welding

The first key difference between brazing and welding is in brazing the base materials being joined are not melted, only the filler wire. Conversely in the welding process the base materials are penetrated. This reason being that during the welding process temperatures reached are higher than the base materials melting point.  In brazing it is the opposite, temperatures reached are lower than the melting point of the base materials thus avoiding penetration.

While there is no need to change the consumables in your torch when brazing or welding, there maybe a requirement for changing the settings on your welding machine e.g. voltage control, wire feed speed and/or gas cylinder settings in order to accommodate any differences encountered when using brazing filler material.
