Brazing material or brazing alloy is a filler metal that is utilized by heating and liquefying the substance to melt into the spaces between two fitted parts, creating a brazed joint. Brazing materials assist in providing requirements like strength and corrosion resistance. Most brazing materials have less shear strength than the products they conjoin. The products can come in different forms such as paste, tape, powder, and more.
Welding Wires and Rods
Welding wires and rods are filler metals used to join together other metals or thermoplastics. This is done by melting the workpieces and adding the conjoining part to melt and bind together, a technique slightly different from brazing materials. The melted pool cools to form a hardened joint.
Engine oil is synthetic lubricating oil for gas turbine engines. It is usually a mixture of chemicals (ex: esters). This product can provide high temperature corrosion and anti-wear protection. It is blended to have high thermal and oxidation performance in turbines. This product is mainly used in jet aircraft and helicopter turbine engines.
A primer is a mixture of chemicals that usually improves and accelerates the sticking together of sealants, primarily silicone, to the surface of other materials like metal, wood, etc. It can also be utilized for structural glazing and weather sealing.
Sealants are substances that conjoin two materials through chemical reactions and adhesion. The product fills in the gaps between the metal components. They are anaerobic adhesives that eliminate the presence of oxygen between the binding space. This allows a tight seal to be formed around the materials. In result, the product can prevent loosening and corrosion.
A cleaner or degreaser is a liquid product that is water-soluble and biodegradable. It is utilized for cleaning and degreasing parts and equipment. Because of its elements, this solution can replace multiple steps when using other substances. It is non-toxic, non-flammable, and non-corrosive. The cleaner/degreasers we carry are approved by the Federal Standard Cleaning Test and the substances can aid in safe disposal of cleaning wastes.
These products are coatings on the surface of the material can provide corrosion prevention as well as maintenance and operational lubrication.
Applied in both aerospace and industry, lubricants provide a coating to prevent seizing and galling in fasteners, rolling element bearings, and other heavy moving parts applications. It can also function as thickening agents and additives. This product provides low friction, good chemical resistance, water resistance, and thermal stability.
Shot Peening Material
Shot is a small spherical product that is used in the process called shot peening. This is a cold working process in which the shots bombard the surface of a part. As the material hits the surface, the shots leave behind an indentation to the surface which results in a surface tension and deep reworkings of the surface that can restore the original shape. This leads to a hemisphere of cold-worked material highly stressed in compression below the dimple.
