Brazing and soldering are done at temperatures below the solidus temperature of the base material but high enough to melt the filler metal and allow the liquid filler metal to wet the surface and spread into the joint gap by capillary action. This article discusses the common advantages of both brazing and soldering. It describes the brazing and soldering of cast irons, as well as the selection of brazing filler material. The article discusses various brazing methods: torch brazing, induction brazing, salt-bath brazing, and furnace brazing. It concludes with information on the application examples of brazing of cast iron.
