These 2 sticks of Aluminium welding rod will weld most types of Aluminium with just a hand held propane type torch (In the Gas Equipment section code 1716) and it will produce a sound joint stronger than the parent metal.
No fluxes required,no fumes and a low working temperature of around 390C degrees
Comes with instructions,a stainless steel brush and 2 x 45cm long rods
Clean area down to base
Brush the base with the stainless steel brush until shiny
Heat the area to be weld evenly
As you heat the base , rub the rod vigorously against the heated piece until the rod flows
Never apply heat to the rod.
Excellent mechanical strength, greater than the welded part.
The DURAFIX aluminium welding rods make it possible to weld with no need for fusion or arc welding equipment.
The only requirement is a suitable torch for the part to be repaired.
Unlike the welds made with normal methods, the DURAFIX rods offer:
– A stronger joint than the aluminium itself
– A clean weld, free from impurities and pores
