Influence of the Mg and Bi content on brazeability of MONOBRAZE material under flux-free brazing conditions

In the conventional brazing, the clad materials with the filler layer and the flux coating have been used to get good brazeability. However, an innovative Al-Si based single-layer brazing material (MONOBRAZE® material) has been developed recently which does not need filler layer by supplying molten filler from the inside of the material during brazing. In addition, a new flux-free brazing technique has also been developed. In the flux-free brazing, Mg and Bi are added to break the oxide film and to improve the wettability of molten filler, respectively. However, it is not clarified how these element works on the brazeability of MONOBRAZE® material in flux-free brazing. Therefore, in this study the effect of Mg and Bi content on the brazeability of MONOBRAZE® material was investigated. From the result, it is found that MONOBRAZE® material is applicable for flux-free brazing by adding Mg. Mg is considered to break the oxide film into fine particles and Bi is considered to assist the destruction of oxide film. From this cause, a new aluminum substrate surface was exposed which allow molten filler to move on the surface and contribute to the formation of the fillet.
