Product Specifications


AM Ag-13a is a versatile and effective silver brazing alloy that is primarily used in Controlled Atmosphere Brazing (CAB) applications. AM Ag-13a is excellent for joining base materials with gaps of excess of .002” and offers greater strength and alloy diffusion due to its Nickel content. 


Brazing Characteristics

AM Ag-13a works very well on Copper, Kovar, Nickel, Metallized Ceramic, Carbon and Tool Steel. A minimum brazing temperature of 1688°F (920°C) is recommended. Am Ag-13a will require a brazing Flux in almost all applications where a CAB Furnace is not used. 



AM Ag-13a conforms to American Welding Society (AWS) A5.8/A5.8M 2019: BAg-13a and Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) AMS 4765


Forms Available

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. Preforms must be cleaned prior to brazing.
