C470 Naval Bronze


INTRODUCTION

Aufhauser Naval Bronze is a 1% tin-copper-zinc filler metal. The addition of tin improves strength and corrosion resistance in the weld deposit. Naval Bronze does not provide as high a weld strength as Low Fuming Bronze (RBCuZn-C, C681). A borax-boric acid flux such as Aufhauser Flux600 is generally required. Joint clearances should be 0.002" to 0.005" wide. Preheating may be desirable for some applications. A neutral or slightly oxidizing flames should be used.

ADVANTAGES

  • Joints are made at lower temperature than in gas or arc welding
  • Minimizes thermal stress and distortion
  • Less susceptibility to cracking
  • Soft and ductile weld deposits
  • Easy machinability
  • Low residual stress
  • High strength fillets
  • Mobile equipment for simple on-site repair

METALS TO BE BRAZE WELDED

  • Steels, cast irons, copper alloys, nickel alloys and stainless steel

APPLICATIONS

Brazing or oxyacetylene welding of steel, cast iron, malleable iron, copper-bronze and nickel alloys.


GENERAL INFORMATION

Chemical Composition
Copper Aluminum Lead Tin Zinc
57.0-61.0 0.01 0.05 0.25-1.0 Remainder

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Copper and its alloys require a relatively high heat input with shortened welding time. Higher preheat temperatures and faster welding rates than for steel are necessary.
