  • Blue Demon Silicon Bronze is a premium quality, De-oxidised general purpose, silicon bronze filler rod producing excellent joints on copper, brass, copper-silicon and copper-zinc sheet, tube and extruded section base metals to themselves and also to steel.
    It is an excellent choice for joining plain or galvanized sheet steel to metal as well as other coated steels.
    Applications: Silicon Bronze is used extensively in applications where superior corrosion resistance and tensile strength is required such as marine engineering, repair and fabrication, including propellers, naval brass fittings, gear wheels, valves, shafts and pumps, and is also used on hot water system applications.
    TYPICAL WELD DEPOSIT PROPERTIES
    Weld Metal Tensile Strength................... 340 MPa.
    Approximate Melting Range................... 970–1020°C
    Brinell Hardness ..................................  80-100
    Procedure for TIG Welding
    Thoroughly clean all areas to be joined or rebuilt of foreign material.
    For thick plate bevel edges 60° 70°included angle.
    ACHF using 100% Argon or Helium Shielding Gas
    2% Thoriated, Ceriated or Lanthanum Tungsten Electrode
    Heat a spot on the base metal until it shows signs of melting and progressively add the filler rod
    to the weld pool. Ensure that the weld pool is as small as possible.
    Procedure for Gas (braze) Welding
    Thoroughly clean all areas to be joined or rebuilt of foreign material.
    For best results use #WF303 all purpose flux powder
    Adjust the flame to neutral or slightly oxidising (excess oxygen).
    For thick plate bevel edges 60°-90°included angle.
    Generally preheat is not required because of the lower melting point and low thermal conductivity.
    Dip the heated end of the rod into the flux.
    Heat a spot on the base metal until it shows signs of melting and progressively add the filler rod
    to the weld pool. Ensure that the weld pool is as small as possible
    Allow to cool and remove flux residue with a wire brush and hot water
