Published: Wednesday, October 19, 2016 Considerations for Carbide Brazing

The mechanical properties of carbides make them useful in applications such as mining tools, cutting tools and wear parts. Let’s look at key factors that play a role in successful carbide brazing: coefficient of thermal expansion, joint design, carbide composition, filler metal selection, flux/atmosphere, fixturing and heating.
