Hi-temp Flux Blog

Why is a high-temperature flux required when brazing with some alloys? Certain materials, such as tungsten carbides, cast irons, steel, stainless steels, plus nickel-based and heat-resistant alloys, require a brazing approach geared to high temperatures. Together, high-temperature fluxes and braze filler metals produce strong joints that prove robust for mining or construction applications. How do you choose the correct flux and filler metal?
