Brazing Tech Paper - Melting Characteristics of Selected Nickel Brazing Filler Metals by Thermal Analysis; Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)


Wall Colmonoy presents the technical paper "Melting Characteristics of Selected Brazing Filler Metals by Thermal Analysis; Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)".
As developed in the 1950s by Bob Peaslee, melting points were measured using thermal analysis during cooling. Today, our brazing engineers are again setting the standard, in partnership with AWS, using the modern method of differential thermal analysis.
This change will enable brazing engineers to control and predict their brazing operations – such as selecting the right brazing furnace cycle – which will result in time and resource savings.
Written by our leading Brazing Technical Team, the paper was presented at the 2018 International Brazing & Soldering Conference (IBSC 2018) and the 12th International Conference on Brazing, High Temperature Brazing and Diffusion Bonding (LÖT 2019).  It examines methods used for thermal analysis for brazing and assesses data reliability for several brazing filler metals including:
  • Nicrobraz® 10 (BNi-6)
  • Nicrobraz® 150 (BNi-9)
  • Nicrobraz® 152 (BNi-15)
Wall Colmonoy's brazing engineers will be working with AWS A5H group for the next update to AWS A5.8 standard to incorporate the amendment. Wall Colmonoy is moving all Nicrobraz® nickel-brazing filler metals to this new standard.

We welcome your comments and look forward to discussing your current and future Brazing needs.
