  • "Tubular Brazing Wire", has anyone here used it

    Following numerous paths just looking at welding stuff and came across an ad from Linde Canada.

    This may not be new but I had not seen it before...

    The TBW (Tubular Brazing Wire) is the ultimate major technical evolution in terms of brazing product. The flux is "confined" in an extruded tube (seamless), which guarantees the integrity of flux characteristics and an excellent brazing process.
    The brand name in this case is "Selectarc" made by the FSH Weld Group in France. The sales flyer from Linde Canada shows TBW 5034B, TBW 5045B and TBW 5056B.

    And, IT AIN'T CHEAP. Not sure where our dollar is right now but prices range from $550 to $805 Canadian per Kg.

    The weld group has a video or two on Youtube, found their brazing of aluminum to aluminum with a torch interesting. Not sure how much of a presence they have worldwide.

    That does not sound too much different from flux core MIG wire. It's .035 wire with flux that vaporizes as the arc melts the wire.

    At the end of the project, there is a profound difference between spare parts and left over parts.
