This article describes the solid-phase and liquid-phase processes involved in diffusion bonding of metals. It provides a detailed discussion on the diffusion bonding of steels and their alloys, nonferrous alloys, and dissimilar metals. Ceramic-ceramic diffusion welding and a variation on this process in which ceramic powder compacts are simultaneously sintered and bonded are also discussed.
