AM Ag-6b is generally used to join silver, copper and nickel base alloys in reducing or inert atmospheres or vacuum. It is also widely used to join metallized ceramics to metals in vacuum. AM Ag-6b is designed for all types of moderate temperature vacuum systems and particularly where maximum precautions must be taken to insure the presence of only a minimum amount of detrimental volatile impurities.
AM Ag-6b is a silver-copper composition alloy similar to BAg-8 with a wide melting range where better gap filling capabilities may be required. On either silver or copper base alloys, AM Ag-6b may exhibit a decreased in fluidity and an increased re-melt temperature due to the solution of either silver or copper in the eutectic. Brazing time and temperature should be minimized to prevent excessive diffusion and erosion of the base metal. This filler metal has limited wetting ability on iron and/on nickel base alloys. The wetting ability it does have is derived from its copper content. Both iron and nickel have practically no solubility in silver, while nickel is readily soluble in copper and the solubility of iron in copper is sufficient to provide.
AM Ag-6b conforms to American Welding Society (AWS) A5.8/A5.8M 2019: BVAg-6b and Unified Numbering System (UNS) P07507.
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.
