AM Pd-Co is primarily used to braze nickel and refractory metals in vacuum applications. AM Pd-Co has low penetration into substrates.
AM Pd-Co has an extremely high melting temperature 2226°F (1219°C) which allows for incredible resistance to extreme environments and thermal exposure. AM Pd-Co is eutectic and is extremely fast flowing at temperature. AM Pd-Co has high oxidation and corrosion resistance and creates extremely strong hermetic seals. AM Pd-Co joint clearance is 0.001 - 0.003” Inches at temperature.
AM Pd-Co conforms to American Welding Society (AWS) A5.8/A5.8M 2019: BPd-1
Wire, Foil, Atomized powder, Paste, Sheet, and Preformed shapes; rings, washers, discs, shims, specialty shapes. Two dimensional shapes can be Laser-cut and/or machined with EDM though parts must be cleaned prior to brazing.
